Greg, Linus,
It sounds insane, but after banging on the issue I have found out that
USB problem is caused (also in vanilla kernel) with a config change:
USB-all built as modules - bad USB
USB core built in, UHCI/EHCI modules - semi functional - but 1Mb/s transfer
USB core and UHCI EHCI built-in - bingo - no issues.

Could anybody duplicate that, or is it somehow my setup???

Thanks, Woody
