Package: linux-image-2.6.17-2-686
Version: 2.6.17-9
Severity: normal

In 2.6.15-*, my USB pen drive worked normally.
In 2.6.16-* and 2.6.17-*, if I 'rmmod ehci_hcd' before inserting
it, it works normally.

But if ehci_hcd is loaded, it flakes out badly.  The way it
flakes out varies.

This is a Dell Dimension 4600.

I would be perfectly happy if I could force the kernel to recognize
the pen drive as "full speed" and not "high speed".  But I don't
really want to lose the ability to have other high speed devices.

It appears not.  I'm not actually sure which computer I reported this
with originally.

I am happy to report that on computer 1 (the most likely):
(1) My kernel correctly fails to load ehci_hcd, even though the
blacklist file was destroyed at some point.
(2) When I force-load ehci_hcd, the pen drive is still recognized
through uhci_hcd and recognized as a full speed device.

On computer 2, the pen drive is recognized through ehci_hcd as a high
speed device -- but I can't reproduce the original erratic behavior, so
I'm assuming it's gone.

But I've switched to Lenny.  (Kernel 2.6.26-1-686).  I really don't know
when the bug was fixed.

Thanks for checking back with me!
