[maemo-developers] N800 experimental host mode patches available

I tried the usb host mode on my N800, but I did not get it working. Here's what I did:
- In scratchbox SDK_ARMEL I downloaded the kernel-source-rx-34_2.6.18-osso40 sources,
- Applied the patches-tusb-n800-2007-05-04.tar.gz patch set from muru.com (it did apply cleanly)
- make n800_defconfig
- make zImage
-  flasher -f -k -R /scratchbox/users/<username>/home/<username>/kernel-source-rx-34/arch/arm/boot/zImage
- echo host > /sys/devices/platform/musb_hdrc/mode

I executed the last command twice and in dmesg there was a line saying that it is already in host mode, so I assumed that all is well now.
However no matter what I connected to the USB port no message appeared in dmesg or in /sys/bus/usb/devices

I used a male mini-B - female A converter that was plugged into the n800 and the memory stick / externally powered usb hdd was connected to that.

Any suggestions how to continue from here?
