Alan Stern has requested you run a kernel compiled with CONFIG_USB_DEBUG
enabled. To accomplish this, you must compile a kernel and boot into it. The
Debian way of doing this is to install kernel-package and use the make-kpkg
tool. You can copy your existing config from /boot to /usr/src/linux/.config
and then run make menuconfig in that directory and add CONFIG_USB_DEBUG. Then
build the package with make-kpkg, install the .deb with dpkg, and set grub,
lilo or kexec to boot into it.
