Abstract: This project involves allowing USB devices on the dom0 to be passed through to the domU. Individual USB devices can be passed through dynamically. The domU needs to have a "frontend" driver that can communicate with the backend driver which runs on the dom0 and takes care of arbitrating and sometimes duplicating the requests.

Deliverables:

Implementation:

Since the feature is under development in Xen, a frontend implementation is advisable to start to engage with the project. Once we have a functioning frontend on a non-NetBSD dom0, then we can engage with the community to develop the backend.
