I take it the stage (1) is to switch over GENERIC to the new usb2 code
and will not involve renaming the config items.
stage (2) moves the usb code around in svn and all USB2 kernel config
items will assume their original names, ie. usb2_controller_echi ->
I think this is what Alfred was getting about with only changing it
