I wonder whether the code in question was supposed to be running at all.
Arkadiusz, what sort of USB devices do you have attached to the computer?

What does /proc/bus/usb/devices say (you may need to do "mount -t usbfs
none /proc/bus/usb" before you can see the file)?

be related at all to uhci-hcd.

If you move the USB devices over to another Linux computer, does the new
computer then have the same problem?
