After adding this patch this even could go to the kernel main line, because it is not device specific but can be configured at runtime. Do you have a reason to support more than one configuration? (e.g. you could *always* ask for 500 mA when your device is connected to the host, which means that it mustn't be connected to a unpowered hub - which is acceptable for this kind of devices, imho)
We would always ask for 500 mA, I expect most applications that require 
recharging really wouldn't be interested in plugging in to a 100 mA port.

Yes, I'm using an earlier patch that was posted to the arm-linux list 
(in June I think).  I'll update to the current patch soon.  We're 
talking to an XP host but can't get it to work with both an XP host and 
a Linux host, doesn't really matter for our end product but it'd be nice 
in development to just run Linux.

I'll be playing with the higher powered configuration at work tomorrow.  
I was going to add it as a config option but it could just as easily be 
a command line option.
