Hello all,

This is a heads up to any users of the hostusb hook of a proposed change
to the option syntax of the hook.

I've been working in the change below to allow the use of bus and device
IDs to identify a host USB device to attach to a guest :

Add the ability to use bus and device IDs with the hostusb hook.

This change results in the old option syntax no longer being accepted by
the hook. Instead only the new syntax will be accepted :

bus=octal:device=octal or vendor=hex:product:hex

Please let me know if you have any concerns regarding this change and
the lack of backward compatibility with the older option syntax.

Thanks in advance,
