Testing on a different computer, just plugging it in with a clean boot
on the same kernel version as before (that this bug was filed against)
immediately crashed the kernel (OOPS, followed shortly by a constant
terminal bell and no response to any input, not even numlock or SysRq).
Testing this device using linux-image2.6.38-2-amd64 from current sid
(v2.6.38-4) resulted in all 4 ports working perfectly. However, I only
could test them individually on that machine, so I can not confirm they
will work simultaneously as they are used on the real system. But, it
certainly seems better to me.
I will follow up once I get a chance to test this on the live system
with this new kernel version, but that may be a while. I suspect this
bug is now resolved, but I can't confirm this until then.
