Hi Dave,

Time flies, doesn't it? :-)

My reply is not related to this patch series, but rather your use

Have you tried using redirdev for this? It might be much more
convenient. You can dynamically attach a USB device to your host while
the domain is running and select it to be passed to the guest in your
spice client (both virt-manager and virt-viewer support this).
