Another use +can probably be found in servers. It provides a peer-to-peer USB +link between two host-only machines. This provides a reasonable +out-of-band communication method between two servers. + +In order to use this, you need to make sure your kernel has been +configured to support USB_XHCI_DBGCAP.
