I did at first, so I dropped the API change from my tree.  Then Alan and
Oliver pointed out that the changes were already in your tree, and I
looked and saw the first one, so just assumed the 2 other ones were
there, and turned off all network USB drivers in my build in order to
handle this.

Then yesterday, Stephen reported that this one driver failed to build,
which I didn't pick up on until today, after the tree had been sent to

So, a mixup on my part, I'm sorry about that.

Will do.

thanks for your patience.
