   I believe it is safe to say that the current uhci driver is
known to be pretty much foobar'd. Lennart Augustsson has done some
work on it, but has registered some frustration in related CVS
commit messages, and seems to think that the driver, or maybe some
of the other usb code (abort code?), could use an overhaul to get
the problem solved properly.
