A custom device? Maybe it's not behaving the way it should.

No. You can tell from the device paths. 3-4 is the device plugged
directly into port 4 of the host controller for bus 3. Similarly, 2-2
is the device plugged directly into port 2 of the host controller for
bus 2.

A good example of a device connected through a hub is the Rohde&Schwarz
FrontPanel USB Keyboard, 1-2.2. This means it is plugged into port 2
of the hub that is plugged into port 2 of the host controller for bus

Also, the fact that these two devices are on different buses means that
they can't be connected to the same hub. If they were, they would both
be on the same bus as that hub.

Under the circumstances, I don't see how it could be.

If you think there is a bad hub, can you remove it and re-solder the
other components?

Unfortunately, your environment isn't very suitable for testing. You
can't attach the hardware to a different computer, you can't use any
test equipment, and you can't even try out different kernel versions.

All together, the odds of solving this problem aren't good.

Maybe yes, maybe no. Without the ability to perform detailed tests, we
can't tell.

What happens if you run the unbind/rebind test under 3.4?
