going back to this, I've noticed the same issues with several other USB
drivers during attachment and I think I've tracked it down to the
following construct:

        devinfop = usbd_devinfo_alloc(dev, 0);
        aprint_normal_dev(self, "%s\n", devinfop);

the USB_ATTACH_SETUP is printing the newline but (perhaps) when we call
usbd_devinfo_alloc() it does some malloc() and allows a context switch
The following patch should fix the issue with uplcom:

are there any objections to committing a similar change in all the USB
drivers? (personally, I would prefer to expand the macro too but thats
another issue :)
