Pardon me for being puzzled, but I don't see how that change could
possibly have any effect on the problem you saw.

Nor do I see how the patch you identified could have caused any
problems. That has_tt flag isn't used anywhere in ehci-hcd (it is only
ever set, never read), and the only place it is used in usbcore is for
adjusting the root hub's device descriptor.
