I assume you are referring to the usb_dev_reset_delayed() change here.
This is only required by the wire adapter code and should not prevent
the majority of the UWB and WUSB stack from being merged.

You should postpone:

usb-add-usb_dev_reset_delayed.patch
wusb-add-the-wire-adapter-core.patch
wusb-add-hwa-hc-wireless-host-controller-driver.patch
wusb-wa-abort-rpipe-request-type-fix.patch

I will correct the lack of sysfs API documentation this week. Please
advise on where the documentation should go and its style and format.
Be aware that some of the API is experimental and subject to change. I
will ensure the documentation is clear on this and that the Kconfig
entries depend on EXPERIMENTAL.

Would this be sufficient to reinstate the majority of the UWB and WUSB
stacks for 2.6.27?

In future, it would be appreciated if any issues with UWB patches are
discussed rather than summarily dropping them.
