Host USB working

With the supplied Nokia micro-USB cable and a female-to-female USB-A adapter it is possible to attach USB devices to the N810. usbcontrol allows to switch the USB controller to host mode, however, the kernel needs also to be fixed (requiring a kernel recompile which is easy, see here and here).

Some devices, such as the MA-620 Infrared Adapter (0x0df7:0x0620) just seem to suck too much power and the N810 collapses (I had to remove the battery to get it working again).
