130           This driver supports several kinds of network links over USB,
131           with "minidrivers" built around a common network driver core
132           that supports deep queues for efficient transfers.  (This gives
133           better performance with small packets and at high speeds).
134 
135           The USB host runs "usbnet", and the other end of the link might be:
136 
137           - Another USB host, when using USB "network" or "data transfer"
138             cables.  These are often used to network laptops to PCs, like
139             "Laplink" parallel cables or some motherboards.  These rely
140             on specialized chips from many suppliers.
141 
142           - An intelligent USB gadget, perhaps embedding a Linux system.
143             These include PDAs running Linux (iPaq, Yopy, Zaurus, and
144             others), and devices that interoperate using the standard
145             CDC-Ethernet specification (including many cable modems).
146 
147           - Network adapter hardware (like those for 10/100 Ethernet) which
148             uses this driver framework.
149 
150           The link will appear with a name like "usb0", when the link is
151           a two-node link, or "eth0" for most CDC-Ethernet devices.  Those
152           two-node links are most easily managed with Ethernet Bridging
153           (CONFIG_BRIDGE) instead of routing.
