Here's all I have. The device is a USB connected Technotrend TT-Connect
S-2400. Support for this was added in kernel 2.6.26. When I came to
upgrade my media PC beyond .26 the dmesg showed the following:-

Media PC (32-bit - Nvidia chipset. kernel 2.6.27)

The device times out. Reverting b963801164618e25fbdc0cd452ce49c3628b46c8
causes it to work again

Reverting b963801164618e25fbdc0cd452ce49c3628b46c8 (manually, as there
are conflicting changes) causes it to work again. The wierd random
frontend number looks strange though.

I'm happy to do any further diagnostics if it will help.
