Well, that was interesting. I upgraded to rc2 and applied that
patch. uhci still behaved the same (can't keep up with scanner).
But usb-uhci now doesn't lock up the system on a shutdown. And it
was the patch that did it, not rc2, because I tried a pristine rc2
build, too, and it still locks up. I note that there's nothing in
the patch that directly touches usb-uhci, so it must be a side
affect of some other fix.

(I'd still like to eventually get uhci working, since the docs
indicate it's the newer, cooler driver. And the ipaq driver
indicates uhci is preferred over the usb-uhci driver.)

Thanks, Greg! That was quite useful.
