USB Sees Many Changes For Linux 3.18 Kernel
Greg Kroah-Hartman sent in pull requests on Tuesday for the various kernel subsystems he maintains. The USB changes as he put it are "lots of little changes in here, all over the place", per his mailing list post.
In digging through the change-log, some of the highlights include support for the Seluxit USB dongle via the cp210x driver, rewritten UAS error handling, a Qualcomm DWC3 glue layer driver has been introduced, the Ketra N1 wireless interface support has been added to the cp210x driver, a Novatel Wireless GPS driver has been added, the Medtronic CareLink USB driver is also new, DMA-BUF importing support for the UVC driver, a Renesas R-Car Gen2 PHY driver was added, and many other USB changes were made throughout the stack.
