libusb 1.0 is a revamp of the previous legacy libusb, with an
incompatible interface.  The legacy libusb used to have an external
windows port, libusb-win32. libusb 1.0 has integrated windows support
in a development branch which will eventually be merged. A notable
difference with libusb-win32 is that this windows port uses the standard
WinUSB interface instead of a self-made driver, and thus makes it work
on windows Vista and 7.

It can thus be useful to the cygwin brltty package, I hence ITP it. Here
is the proposed setup.hint, quite inspired from the libusb-win32
