The set of patches fixed some typo in network docs and codes and
is trying to support usb-net qemu virtual device.

The following is an example for use.

Libvirt XML sample:
   <devices>
     <interface type='user'>
       <mac address='52:54:00:32:6a:91'/>
       <model type='usb-net'/>
Do we really want the model type to be "usb-net"? the "-net" part is
already implicit in the type of device, and there is no requirement that
it needs to exactly match the qemu commandline parameter (although I
suppose that's normally the case). As a matter of fact, <type
model='virtio'/> ends up being equivalent to "-device virtio-net-pci".
Indeed, we should really base the name on the actual hardware
since there can be many many different USB NICs implemented.

Finding a model name in the usb.ids file is a good place to
start

   Okay, I am going to make a v2.
   Thanks for the review
