Well. I just re-tested it a couple more times to be sure, and the
"hcd->has_tt = 1;" line does make all the difference in the world when
it comes to getting oopses on plugging in low speed USB devices on this
board. So if you don't understand what's going on then I guess I don't
either.

Maybe this code in drivers/usb/core/hub.c has something to do with
it?

switch (hdev->descriptor.bDeviceProtocol) {
case 0:
break;
case 1:
dev_dbg(hub_dev, "Single TT\n");
hub->tt.hub = hdev;
break;
case 2:
ret = usb_set_interface(hdev, 0, 1);
if (ret == 0) {
dev_dbg(hub_dev, "TT per port\n");
hub->tt.multi = 1;
} else
dev_err(hub_dev, "Using single TT (err %d)\n",
ret);
hub->tt.hub = hdev;
break;
default:
dev_dbg(hub_dev, "Unrecognized hub protocol %d\n",
hdev->descriptor.bDeviceProtocol);
break;
}
