That's the problem. Notice the "not running at top speed" message?
Something went wrong when the hub was detected. It could be a problem
in your EHCI controller or a problem in the hub.

You can get more information about this by unplugging the hub, running
usbmon (on the 0u file), and then plugging the hub back in.

That order doesn't matter much. But this...

Those two differences seem strange to me. You might want to report it
in a new email thread on LKML. You might also want to see if the same
thing happens with a 2.6.32 kernel.

It's worth a try. Still, the original problem you saw (the oops in
ehci-hcd) is in software, not in hardware, so the hub can't be entirely
responsible.
