Sure. I basically took the same approach as you suggested in your
previous mail, but have split the the lowlevel functions into board and
cpu dependant handling. I think this makes sense as boards for example
can use the same cpu ohci controller but may require specific board
dependant power settings. Either can be chosen by defining

I also discovered that the actions taken in case of failure sometimes
differ from those to stop the controller, so I added the fail functions.

So I ended up with these hooks:



I have currently adapted the monahans, the at91rm9200, and the s3c24x0
cpus to use the generic driver. Please note that I used the
cpu/arm920t/at91rm9200/usb_ohci.[hc] driver as a starting point for the
generic driver.

We are currently starting a new USB testing branch for testing these and
other USB related changes, which should be available in the git repo

Your patch looks fine, but would you mind resubmitting it against the
USB testing branch using the generic driver (drivers/usb_ohci.c) ?

Thank you!
