Subject: Re: Linux 3.8-rc1 - another regression on USB :-(

 Any chance you can bisect this? It's not going to be hugely pleasant
(with 11k+ commits in between 3.7 and 3.8-rc1 you'll have to compile
and test at least 14 kernels), but it would help enormously. Of
course, maybe some USB person can guess what would cause the device to
go offline..

Added Greg and the linux-usb mailing list to the participants list:
the images are in the original email on lkml, but there isn't anything
particularly interesting there, it really just seems to be an
unexpected and spurious USB disconnect, resulting in "USB disconnect,
device number 2" followed by "Rejecting I/O to offline device".
