I have in my local tree, stubs for usbport, usbuhci, usbehci, usbohci,
I was going to wait till I got a bit more of the needed headers put
commiting it all to SVN.
If you want to start, I would suggest reading MSDN, specifically the
the USB stack in WindowsXP. There isn't alot of information there, but
if you read
through the USB structure definitions, you can get an idea of how usbhub
I was planning to do the usbport->usbuhci part first. I don't think
that it would be easy
to split that work among developers yet. This is because the interface
and its miniport drivers is completely undocumented. I'll be creating
this as I go along.
Once usbport->usbuchi works, then someone else can take on making
usbohci or usbehci
if they wish. However, I'm willing to be that we will need to rework
the interface between
usbport and its miniports when we implement the second miniport.
I'm glad that other people want to help with USB (it is a rather large
undertaking). We do
have several pieces that we need (other than the controller stack). We
-(the rest of the HID pieces in the OS)
I'm sure that there is more than that...
It would be great if someone started working on those peices while I'm
getting the host
controller to work.
