It is the other architectures that I'm specifically worried about. I know that x86 flavors will work even without testing them specifically since I've been doing something akin to this for years. I've not had good luck always with arm and mips platforms and USB, so I'd feel better if we could get some testing done there. I'll see what I can dig up from my board pile to test, but my coverage will be limited.
Read this as a "go ahead with x86, please wait on the others for more data" from me.
