I've installed 2.6.38rc6 on 3 SPECS units without problems with the USB networking, however, the behaviour has reverted to how SL40 used usb0:
1. Cold-plugging the USB networking cable does not work.
2. Hot-plugging generates output on the serial console but the interface needs to be taken down and then put back up.
3. It needs various changes on the PC but those haven't changed since SL40 (tcl-usbnet package).
