125           This driver supports several kinds of network links over USB,
126           with "minidrivers" built around a common network driver core
127           that supports deep queues for efficient transfers.  (This gives
128           better performance with small packets and at high speeds).
129 
130           The USB host runs "usbnet", and the other end of the link might be:
131 
132           - Another USB host, when using USB "network" or "data transfer"
133             cables.  These are often used to network laptops to PCs, like
134             "Laplink" parallel cables or some motherboards.  These rely
135             on specialized chips from many suppliers.
136 
137           - An intelligent USB gadget, perhaps embedding a Linux system.
138             These include PDAs running Linux (iPaq, Yopy, Zaurus, and
139             others), and devices that interoperate using the standard
140             CDC-Ethernet specification (including many cable modems).
141 
142           - Network adapter hardware (like those for 10/100 Ethernet) which
143             uses this driver framework.
144 
145           The link will appear with a name like "usb0", when the link is
146           a two-node link, or "eth0" for most CDC-Ethernet devices.  Those
147           two-node links are most easily managed with Ethernet Bridging
148           (CONFIG_BRIDGE) instead of routing.
