The beauty of a wiki is that anyone can edit or correct it.

We have regular documentation days where we are all (users and devs
alike) encouraged to work to improve the state of the wiki and other


The state of the Xen documentation base has actually improved
considerably over the last year due to this initiative.

I'm not sure what you are referring to here, the config file syntax is
documented in docs/man/xl.cfg.pod.5 which is installed as the xl.cfg(5)
manpage. It is also available online
http://xenbits.xen.org/docs/unstable/man/xl.cfg.5.html and referenced
from the wiki e.g. http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Xen_Man_Pages

This manpage contains:
        =item B<usbdevice=[ "DEVICE", "DEVICE", ...]>
        Adds B<DEVICE>s to the emulated USB bus. The USB bus must also be
        enabled using B<usb=1>. The most common use for this option is
        B<usbdevice=['tablet']> which adds pointer device using absolute
        coordinates. Such devices function better than relative coordinate
        devices (such as a standard mouse) since many methods of exporting
        guest graphics (such as VNC) work better in this mode. Note that this
        is independent of the actual pointer device you are using on the
        host/client side.
        Host devices can also be passed through in this way, by specifying
        host:USBID, where USBID is of the form xxxx:yyyy.  The USBID can
        typically be found by using lsusb or usb-devices.
        The form usbdevice=DEVICE is also accepted for backwards compatibility.
        More valid options can be found in the "usbdevice" section of the qemu
