As a matter of fact, it probably isn't. The hub should have switched
over to EHCI when the module was loaded. The question remains whether
the problem is in the hub or in the EHCI controller.

You don't have to compile either driver into the kernel. Try doing

rmmod ehci-hcd

dmesg -c >/dev/null (clear the log buffer)

Start up usbmon on the 0u file

Plug in the hub, which attaches to UHCI

modprobe ehci-hcd
At this point the hub should switch over to EHCI

It will make things easier to understand if you unplug all other USB
devices first. Let's see what that shows, both in usbmon and in dmesg.

It would be nice if the EHCI controller turned out to be at fault.
Then we could blame this entire problem on the controller hardware. :-)
