well, it's a git tree, and all that this implies. The git URL is
right at the top of linux-next.patch.

The full changelog is contained in linux-next.patch. Searching it for
"Option" quickly leads to

USB: add option hso driver

This driver is for a number of different Option devices. Originally
written by Option and Andrew Bird, but cleaned up massivly for
acceptance into mainline by me (Greg).

- remove proc files and move to debugfs
- review network interfaces
- add better changelog information
- Use netif_msg_ for the message level rather than module parameter
- net_device_stats are now available in dev->stats

Many thanks to the following for their help in cleaning up the driver by
providing feedback and patches to it:
- Paulius Zaleckas <paulius.zaleckas@xxxxxxxxxxxx>
- Oliver Neukum <oliver@xxxxxxxxxx>
- Alan Cox <alan@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
