To make testing simpler, use only the USB-2 ports. The xHCI driver is
not as mature as the EHCI driver.

For testing, use a kernel with CONFIG_USB_DEBUG and CONFIG_PRINTK_TIME
enabled. Do the following:

After a normal boot, run "dmesg -C" to clear the log buffer.

Then plug in the stick. After a couple of seconds, type Alt-SysRq-W.

Then unplug the stick. After a couple of seconds, type Alt-SysRq-W

Then collect the output from dmesg and post it.

I doubt the elevator has anything to do with this.
