something similar is being done in the latest versions of qemu. There is a
usb redirection module which is in the form of a client/server architecture
where USB packets are sent over IP. These two modules communicate with
eachother through a protocol developed specifically for the redirection of
USB devices over IP so if I were you I would have a look at the qemu code
for some ideas.
