That's because you need control messages? With kernel 2.4.13 and
later, this shouldn't be a problem. sanei_usb_control_msg() isn't
written yet, but I don't think that this will be difficult.

When you are ready, just post a link to it on this list so some people
can have a look at it and check for the usual problems (e.g. on
non-Linux/i386 platforms). When everything is ok, I (or anyone with
CVS access) can do the checkin.
