I searched the archives for information about USB devices in domU, but I didn't 
understand everything.

Are the changes in the current linux-2.6 hg tree, or do I need some patches? I 
tried the current xen-unstable hg tree.

I have a

usb = [ 'path=4-4' ]

line in my config.

xm create says:
Error: Device 0 (usb) yould not be connected. Hotplug scripts not working.

What am I doing wrong?

It it possible, to pass an usb port to a domU, and to this port I connect an 
USB hub, and all the devices on the hub will be available in a domU?
What happens, if someone plugs a device off, that is exportet to a domU?

Thanks in advance,
