it takes longer to write than to read.  ;)

you're talking about host architectures.  they depend on your
motherboard (or PCI card if you're using USB through PCI), not device.
USB devices can use both OHCI and UHCI.  otherwise you'd see two versions
of every USB device.

i don't believe a USB host controller will be registered by the wrong
