usb_device_read acquires a couple of locks, one for the USB bus list and
one for the root hub of the bus it's looking at. I don't know which one
occurs at offset 229 on your system -- maybe you can tell. Oddly enough,
neither of those locks is for a USB device like the Maxtor drive. So it's
not at all clear why plugging in the drive should mess up kudzu. Or why
the blockage should clear up after a couple of minutes.

Perhaps we can find out by looking at other entries in the stack trace.
Of particular interest are the khubd, usb-storage, and scsi_eh processes.
