We separate the "low-level" code and the application code, kind of
like separating the OS and the applications.

In the CVS the OS level is called "firmware" for historical reasons
(CVS doesn't allow us to rename it).

The status bar code is in the application tree and the USB handling
is in the firmware tree. Therefore it is not as simple as calling the
statusbar redraw function in usb.c. We need to move some code to the
application tree and do some additional code restructuring to do this
in a kosher way.
