    I think I fixed it long ago - we shipped it with Red Hat Linux 7.1
    on ia64, and in errata for i386. I recall arguing about it with
    Georg Archer, and it was accepted into Linus tree. But perhaps not
    every hole was plugged.

    Well, good. If you have an SMP problem - post to the list.
    I have 2 SMPs, one with uchi and one with ohci, which run well.
    People used to think that USB on SMP was a non-issue, but
    unfortunately companies like Dell started to ship rackmounted
    SMPs with USB keyboards :)

    I think the JE uhci forgets to post a callback sometimes,
    so I'll look. Meanwhile, try to remove that printout -
    it's only for JE uhci bughunt.
