[Kernel][Both] USB host mode support added (github link)
I've just added USB host mode support for the Galaxy Tabs. ( Can some mod move this post to the Android developer forum and bless me for posting in that forum? I'm happy to answer questions/discuss but I can't post there yet because I just created this account)
[Ugh! because I have less than eight posts I can't include github links - you'll need to linkify yourself... ]
The github site is here:
Documentation on the changes:
The changelist you probably want if you are want to cherry-pick into another kernel tree:
These changes fix a number of bugs in the Samsung host mode software but are probably not well suited for regular end users. I would recommend that developers who are generating Galaxy Tab kernels consider picking up these changes.
It really works? That would be superb news! Thank you very much for investing your time in it. Can`t wait to see it in a kernel on my tab.
Yes. It works for me on a Sprint SPH-P100, but I bet it will work on all 7" tabs (the USB hw seems the same). I look forward to some other dev trying it out and letting me know how it works for them. From looking at the samsung sample code, I bet it will work on most samsung chipset based devices (certainly the S5PC100 based ones).

Does P1000 have the right hw, can it provide 5 volts to usb client or we also need a power injector (usb hub)?
I bet it will also need power for the 5V USB. In the samsung code they have bits that look like it is turning on the right LDO to have power, but nothing comes out on my SPH-P100. Either the sw init needs more work, or they didn't stuff some part when they built up the units.

Does that mean this hasn't actually been tested on a SGT yet?
