Subject[PATCH 011/173] USB: prevent buggy hubs from crashing the USB stack
2.6.27.59-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Alan Stern <stern@rowland.harvard.edu>

commit d199c96d41d80a567493e12b8e96ea056a1350c1 upstream.

If anyone comes across a high-speed hub that (by mistake or by design)
claims to have no Transaction Translators, plugging a full- or
low-speed device into it will cause the USB stack to crash. This
patch (as1446) prevents the problem by ignoring such devices, since
the kernel has no way to communicate with them.
