Description Gerhard Sittig 2020-08-23 20:46:51 CEST
Windows builds of libsigrok depend on an external libusb branch which supports 
event handling by means of poll-able objects (file handles). The external branch 
is no longer available. Instead mainline libusb integrated the feature, but 
provides a different API. Build instructions and USB handling in libsigrok 
need adjustment.

https://github.com/libusb/libusb provides usbi_os_handle_t, libsigrok's 
configure.ac and src/usb.c could use this when libusb_os_handle is missing.

Status update: sigrok-util 149202b4da31 unbreaks the external reference to 
the rawio using libusb version. Using recent mainline libusb in the sigrok 
build remains to be done.
