On any kernels > 3.7.6 USB drives are taking a very long time to show up and I'm getting a lot of these:
Feb 16 06:45:40 archy kernel: usb 1-3: device not accepting address 3, error -110
Feb 16 06:45:56 archy kernel: usb 1-3: device descriptor read/64, error -110
Feb 16 06:46:11 archy kernel: usb 1-3: device descriptor read/64, error -110
Feb 16 06:46:21 archy kernel: usb 1-3: device not accepting address 5, error -110
Feb 16 06:46:32 archy kernel: usb 1-3: device not accepting address 6, error -110
Feb 16 06:46:32 archy kernel: hub 1-0:1.0: unable to enumerate USB device on port 3
...in my log. Does anyone know if there were any USB related changes to the kernel recently or have any ideas of things I could try besides downgrading my kernel?
Me too! Same message from journalctl. kernel 3.7.7, with several usb devices (hdd, pendrive, dvb-t tuner).
I'm waiting for linux-3.7.8.
Gooberslot, what's your kernel version?
Ok, it's a bug related to ehci_hcd module, kernel 3.7.7 and 3.7.8 are affected:
Currently (on 3.7.8), only manually reloading (modprobe -r ehci_hcd) ehci_hcd works.

Right now I rolled back to 3.7.6 which is the last version that worked.
BTW, 3.7.8 is already out.
I edited my previous post.
Yes 3.7.8 is out, but don't solve this bug.
I think must downgrade too.
Same issue here. I lost some time messing up with USB cables before figure out that problem was kernel!
Tried the new Linux 3.7.9: bug still present. Now running Linux 3.7.6: USB working correctly.
I am having this issues while trying to install Arch on a brand new system. I get the errors during the bootup of the installation environment and it hangs instead of getting me to the installation shell.
This issue does NOT occur however if I choose to install 32 bit Arch instead of 64 bit.
Is there a way I can tell what kernel the installation environment uses? Is there a way I can downgrade it so I can begin the install of 64 bit arch?
Unfortunately the bug still seems to be present in Linux 3.8. Has this bug been reported to the kernel developers?
Yes, it has been reported:
Yes, you're right, not to kernel devs ;]

https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/29526 may be related?
Also possible that some problems are being worked on through the kernel usb report at: http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-usb/msg79420.html ?
The OP didn't specify if usb2 or usb3 - but I have had some issues with usb3 - and I also found an older report at https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 1#p1001561
Is this with ehci or xhci? Does the high speed module affect usb2 devices also, or usb3 devices which are also usb2 compatible?
I only have USB2 and it happens even if the usb drive is plugged in at boot.
Fixed in linux 3.8.3-1 (now in testing).
