The R-Pi model B connects through a USB hub chip and can only support
R-Pi as host (connecting to devices like mouse/keyboard/disks).
The model A has a direct connection to the usb socket, so can in
theory act as a host or device. (But has never been tested as a device
and this is not an essential feature).

No better for a linux driver. There are other people interested in
getting USB working on non-linux platforms (e.g. RISC OS), but again
that is non-essential.

I'm Dom Cobley from Broadcom. Apologies if my git commits were
incorrect, I'm quite new to the linux world.
