The USB host/gadget should be working in arch/powerpc with all the
patches I submitted to ppc and usb-devel applied.  AFAIK, all the
patches posted to usb-devel will be picked up for 2.6.23.  I hope the
platform rework code will also be picked up; I see nothing preventing it
from being included.

Good, the USB drivers are intended to be platform independent.  The soc
specific configuration will be done in the rework patch I submitted.
The only thing you need to take care of is board specific setup.  Feel
free to contact me if you have any problem.
