From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT)

Description of problem:
The usbdnet patch referenced in the URL enables support for Ethernet-over-USB.  
Incorporating this would be invaluable for allowing my Linux-based Sharp Zaurus 
SL-5500 PDA to access the Internet via its USB cradle.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. cd /lib/modules/`uname -r`/usb directory
2. ls -l usbdnet.o
3. When file not found, make xconfig
4. Click on "USB Support"
5. Look for "USBD Network (Encapsulated) Host-to-Host Link (EXPERIMENTAL)" 
6. When not found, exit kernel configuration
7. Check on this bugzilla entry for status update
8. Repeat step 7 several times daily while crossing fingers for change in 

Actual Results:  Get stuck in infinite loop on step 8.

Expected Results:  Step 2 has output.

Additional info:

Mandrake 8.2 already supports this patch in their kernel.
