That's an odd way to write a changelog, don't you think?

You need to describe what you are doing here and why you are doing it.
Not a list of file names, we can see that in the diffstat.

Also, you don't mention you are doing USB stuff here at all. And why
are you doing it here? That should be added in a later patch.

Break this up into smaller, logical, pieces that add the infrastructure
and build on it. Don't just chop your patches up on a logical-file
boundry, as you are adding stuff in this patch that you do not need for
many more later on, which means it was not needed here.

thanks,

greg k-h
