Sorry, sorry, sorry.

is was the CONFIG_USB_EHCI_TT_NEWSCHED that did it.
I confused both options, without the above option printer works
flawlessly.

In addition I instructed modprobe to load ehci when it loads uhci, and
then uhci.

Truth is truth, I have again seen same timeout messages, just after I
reboot the printer. It is possible that some of the hp scripts, eg the
one that loads firmware, queries the printer while firmware loads or so,
anyway even after such message printer works (I printed a page using
it).



Now I will enable again the CONFIG_USB_EHCI_TT_NEWSCHED, and see how
fast it will fail.


Best regards,
