Are you sure about that? Right now, the code doesn't look like any
other virtual bus code, but that's because it needs to be fixed up and
work properly (not with the two layers of indirection that was added a
long time ago before the code was opened up.)

I think once the code is cleaned up properly, you might find that it can
be combined much easier than you think...

So no, I'll not allow this TODO item to be removed until after the vbus
code is fixed up, and you can convince me that it really is unique
enough to remain as-is.

Oh, and again, please properly line-wrap your changelog comments.
