    What you did was very wrong citizen. Please stand still where you are and don't worry, the termination process isn't painful.

    That said, no, let's keep this in kernel plz, so that anyone else that might be looking for doing something like that can do so without reinventing the wheel.

    Well, it still needs drivers to interact with the host system, this thing allows it to interact with other hardware in the system.

    IntelME is a backdoor, nothing more nothing less.

    Which is like, the single biggest issue Linux has compared to Windows and OS X; vendor driver support.
    Oh. Are binary blobs and Intel Management Engine because of that?

    Sounds like danger. Why should I let a hardware device with its own firmware talk with my usb host controllers?
