Cromwell works! Why not have it in the system! There are no USBPDO-x or USBFDO-x,
but at lest it loads. I fixed the problem with the sys directory. It builds

Blame the new build system!
I had no choice, interface was creating conflicts, I could not locate the
reason why ATM. I think it is a __USE_W32API thing, Interface must be used

I had to comment out IoGetDeviceProperty, there is no pnp support yet so why make
this call? For the rest of the code, I will clean up the mess I made. Some things
should not have been committed.

Here is the problem,,
Well, put simply,
Usbd and Usbport are Microsoft closed proto-calls. So, using linux as a base
