Heh, I _know_ I'm not done with USB changes :)
I'll just be backporting the ones that are now stable, and have been in
the tree for a long time. I'll not be backporting all of the new HCD
drivers for one.

Here's what I think I'll change in 2.4.20 that is now in the 2.5 tree:
        - update the USB documentation
        - remove the horrible typedefs in usb.h
        - change usb_submit_urb and usb_alloc_urb apis
        - add new drivers
        - backport the usb-serial api and locking changes

And that will probably be enough for 2.4.20. In the meantime, the USB
changes in 2.5 will continue on, giving us more fodder to backport in
2.4.21, not to mention 2.2.22 :)
