And it's more: even without usb-storage, other USB devices does
not work, waiting in the same usb_start_wait_urb.

Ok, it turned out to be pretty.. interesting.

It's not a regression within -stable kernel series. The problem
happens when BOTH are true:

- using latest BIOS for this mobo (1401), AND
- enabling KVM_GUEST in kernel.

The only difference in my kernel config between .1 and .5 was
to enable KVM_GUEST and KVM_CLOCK, and also I2C_HELPER_AUTO
which was added by kernel update.

Going with previous BIOS (1201) OR disabling PARAVIRT_GUEST
fixes the problem. I'll try to figure out which config
option is at problem here.
