I know that it's currently not possible to plug a USB 1.1 device into a
2.0 hub connected to a 2.0 port. I have no idea why this should be;
I'll just assume that's some side-effect of weirdness in the USB spec.
However... If I were to plug a 1.1 hub into the machine's 2.0 ports,
and then plug a 1.1 device into that hub, would it work?
