No I agree, no extra information ;-(

No, I don't have a manageble Hub.

A tcpdump is also not soming any information

One thing that could be a problem is this:

Here a part of the src/UPDATING file:
        The method by which athhal-elf.o gets pulled into i386
        kernel builds has been changed again.  The latest version
        of is no longer required.

I seem to have problems with this object file when building the
kernel. I get the message that this file (athhal-elf.o) is missing when
the kernel. Could this be a problem ?
