This is just an information to the world, because I did not found this 
in any forum yet.

I tried to mount an usb stick into a VM this way:

root at promo:~# qm list
/      VMID     NAME           STATUS     MEM(MB)    BOOTDISK(GB) PID
        200     win7-01          running    4096              32.00 2123
root at promo:~# lsusb
/Bus 002 Device 004: ID 058f:6387 Alcor Micro Corp. Transcend JetFlash 
Flash Drive

/root at promo:~# qm set 200 -hostusb 058f:6387
/Unknown option: hostusb
400 unable to parse option
qm set <vmid> [OPTIONS]/

After some searching in the documentation I found out that the command 
in Proxmox 2.x has changed a bit:

qm set 200 -usb0 host=058f:6387

will now work as expected.

Detailed informations:
