    This chipset was known to have bugs in it, which I think we fixed
    already. I have a laptop with this chipset and it can sustain large
    ammounts of USB data just fine with the 2.6.27 kernel series, so I
    wonder if something is wrong with your usb disk drive?

    I've added some AMD developers on the CC: who helped develop the last
    fix for this chipset. Libin, do you know of anything in the chipset
    that would cause these problems?
