Thanks, r2994.

Good question. This needs some more testing, but I _think_ Linux just
enables the USB ports anyway, no matter what we configure here
(even setting it to 'off' in Config.lb seems to be ignored by Linux (?))

That's not a reason to not attempt any init, though. We not only want to
support Linux but also ADLO/Windows, FILO/GRUB (which might require
the USB devices to be setup (?)), custom payloads etc.
