Hello Matthias,

just a curious informal question, see below.

This sounds like it would be useful for other hub controllers as well?
For example, would the Microchip USB3503 (former SMSC,
drivers/usb/misc/usb3503.c, [1]) fall into this category? That chip is
used on the "Cubietech Cubietruck Plus" for example.

Sounds interesting.
