Zach indicated that the fix it too early to tell if it will be origen specific or not.

Completed the Android Framework changes for USB tethering and is working fine in Origen Board:
Test Method:
Enabled USB Tethering: Settings->More->USB Tethering->Enable.

This assigns IP to host machine and we can ping it.

Working on Pushing patches to Gerrit.
