= USB redirection over the network



Allow redirecting a USB device to another machine over the network. For example use an USB webcam attached to machine A on machine B. For Fedora 16 the focus will be on allowing using USB devices attached to some machine (not necessarily the host machine) inside a qemu-kvm virtual machine.
