No. The current hardware I am testing on does not support USB since the USB bus
is not "wired" at all, there is no phy present (this maybe causes a problem ?).
What I test is if the ehci-orion USB host driver is able to register with and
configure the USB host controller present in the SoC, in order to prepare things
for when the hardware is available.

Hopefully I get some new hardware prototypes where the USB bus is complete this
week so that I can test on the real setup.

OK, that's good to know, I will have a look at this driver and maybe I can find
a few differences there. ehci-orion is however stil the driver to use with this
platform, right ?

I tried to look if I found something in u-boot regarding USB and Kirkwood and
found nothing else that the USB_EHCI_MARVELL. With it enabled, u-boot is able to
init the controller and scan the "empty" bus, but it then does not help the
kernel to later probe the ehci-orion driver: it does not more that
ehci_orion_conf_mbus_windows() from ehci-orion).
