Well I do have 4.13-rc1 kernel - where the only difference is the revert
of mentioned patched - so I can provide probably traces from this one if that
helps anything.

What is not quite clear to me - why T440 works.

Could this be in some way related to the fact that T61 is USB2 only old lenovo
machine while T440 works with USB3 (new SuperSpeed USB device number...)

So maybe there is some time-sensitive logic - where WD Elements
decides to be USB2 or USB3 device ???
