    I wish you'd stop saying that. Have you ever done any serious testing?

    Here's something to try: Add a time delay to the end of hub_suspend in
    drivers/usb/core/hub.c, so you can provoke a race manually. Then while
    one of your root hubs is being suspended and the system is waiting in
    that delay, either plug in a new USB device to that hub or unplug an
    existing device.

    Be sure that CONFIG_USB_DEBUG is on so that we can figure out what
    happened after the fact.
