I'm just wondering, would FFIPKG or HSFFIG help out? I just looked at
usb.h, and it does not seem to contain anything that would break
HSFFIG (mainly C functions that take/return structures rather than
pointers to structures, do).

I am not very much interested personally in interfacing USB, but if
anybody is, feel free to try FFIPKG out and ask questions.

PS Sorry for such "self-advertising", but I believe that this tool
could be helpful at least for prototyping bindings, so I'd appreciate
any feedback.
