I've tried enabling RNDIS gadget option in the kernel, for which
windows ships default driver, but it did not work with both xp and 7.
Quick testing with usb sniffer and RNDIS protocol spec showed that Ben
does not reply to the protocol request packet from host, but sends
some meaningless truncated response instead. Seems like RNDIS support
in linux kernel has been broken for quite a while. Googling reveals
many reports on this problem, but I've found no solution yet. I'm
running qi-kernel 2.6.36, just in case.
