[Bug 898003] Re: usbip source is maintained in kernel tree now


For those users wanting a solution:

Uninstall usbip package if you've installed it.

On trusty, install linux-tools-generic-lts-utopic. I can't seem to find
a package that will create a binary, but you can run the binary manually
from /usr/lib/linux-tools/. As of this writing it's /usr/lib/linux-
tools/3.16.0-23-generic/usbip. NOTE, I am running the HWE utopic kernel
on my trusty box.

On utopic or vivid install linux-tools-generic. usbip is registered as a
binary in this case, you can use directly with 'usbip'.

Bug description:
  Both the userspace and kernel module parts of usbip are in the linux
  kernel tree now.  The source used in this package is quite old.

  I'm not sure how to best handle the packaging aspects here -- I
  imagine that it would be undesirable for usbip to be built as a side
  effect of the main kernel package build, because then the kernel
  package build would be even slower and usbip is probably not updated
  enough to justify that.
