In drivers/usb/core/hub.c, look through the hub_events() routine.
There are several function calls similar to this one:

ret = hub_port_status(hub, i,
&portstatus, &portchange);

Here i is the port number. This asks the hub to send back status and
change information for port i. (See also the code for the
hub_port_status() and get_port_status() routines.)
