    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.
