In some way, the libusb is precisely meant to hide these differences.
Wherefore, a new question : is it possible to design a special libusb
which, even though being a Linux type library, would translate into
native NetBSD kernel USB calls.
Or should I implement a fake socket type Linux libusb, whose calls would
be caught by a BSD demon listening on some port, who would then call the
true libusb, and report the results ?
