:-) That's pretty funny -- although you may not think so.

All right, what you need to do is prevent autosuspend from getting
enabled in the first place.

For testing purposes, the easiest way to do this is

echo -1 >/sys/module/usbcore/parameters/autosuspend

before plugging in the webcam. The -1 will then be used as the default
autosuspend delay for all new USB devices, and since it is negative,
autosuspend will be disabled.

In the long run, it may be necessary to add a quirk entry to always
use a reset-resume with this device. You can find similar entries in
drivers/usb/core/quirks.c for other Logitech webcams, which makes it
seem very likely that one is needed for yours. If you want you
can try adding the appropriate entry and submit it as a patch.

None of this explains why there isn't any problem when the webcam is
plugged into a USB-3 port, unfortunately.
