  Description     : Device firmware update (DFU) USB programmer

 dfu-util is a program that implements the Host (PC) side of the USB DFU
 (Universal Serial Bus Device Firmware Upgrade) protocol.
 In the OpenMoko project (for example), this program is used to communicate
 with the specially enhanced u-boot boot loader, which implements the DFU
 device side.

Note: This program is similar to dfu-programmer, but not the same. For
the differences (and reasons to package this in addition to
dfu-programmer) see:
