Alright then. I just checked in your last USB patch, after reviewing it:
I agree it's best to commit it. It has a few minor problems, but this is
much better than leaving it to bitrot. Then we can work on fixing them more
Let's enumerate them again:
- OHCI works on qemu but hasn't been tested on real hardware.
- --enable-grub-emu-usb isn't yet known to work.
- There might be endianess issues affecting powerpc (note: we aren't
building it there yet, we'd have to move PCI support to i386.rmk first)
- A few parts of it are marked "XXX".
I'll add one more to the list: keyboard support wasn't included in this
patch. I'll look into your other pieces of code and retrieve a working
Other than this, massive storage on UHCI should work fine. See
http://grub.enbug.org/USBSupport for details on how to use it.
