USB/IP support?

v3.17-rc3 gained (well, it was present before in staging) an interesting new

        tristate "USB/IP support"
        depends on USB && NET
          This enables pushing USB packets over IP to allow remote
          machines direct access to USB devices. It provides the
          USB/IP core that is required by both drivers.

          For more details, and to get the userspace utility
          programs, please see <http://usbip.sourceforge.net/>.

          To compile this as a module, choose M here: the module will
          be called usbip-core.

          If unsure, say N.

Hence USB is no longer limited to Ataris with NetUSBee, but can be used
"by proxy" on all network-enabled m68k machines.
Have fun with webcams, TV-cards, ...

Do you think we should enable (modular, of course) USB and its myriads of
drivers in all defconfigs now?

In personal conversations with technical people, I call myself a hacker. But
when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
