Specifically talking about HP USB printers that work with hplip on Linux,
but not on NetBSD which arrangement is workable:
1. Using hplip as Linux emulation rather than native. (Will hplip "see"
the usb devices as it sees on Linux?)
2. Passing NetBSD usb devices (such as /dev/ulpt etc) to an emulator such
as qemu and letting a Linux guest OS access the printer?
