I was wondering if there are any plans to address USB passthrough with Xen 3. I have virtualized Windows servers running under Xen on IBM BladeCenter, and need to assign USB ports to different Windows instances. The ports have copy protection dongles installed so that a specific package can be run on each instance of Windows. We have 2 dongles and need to assign one to one instance of Windows, and the other to another instance. Any ideas on how I can do this?
