I'm using a recent NettBSD-current on sparc64 hardware and I never had lockups 
with USB. Maybe it's something related to a particular USB driver? I use a 
Belkin PCI USB card and I regularly transfer music and image files to/from 
USB sticks formated with FAT32 filesystem. Never had any issues with it.
