[plug] mini PCIe E-slot to USB3

I note that in the industrial world there are loads of RS-232 or RS-485 to
Ethernet serial servers (e.g. from Moxa or Lantronix) but practically no
otherwise identical device for USB, unless you step up to e.g. a Moxa
UC-8100 "pocket computer", where you can use Linux OS utilities to do the
job on a USB port.

I have these devices if you would like to look.  Either hands on or I have
them exposed via port forwarding.
