Adding more people who were involved in the original patch.

Users are now seeing the unresponsive USB2 ports with Promontory hosts.
Is there any update on a better way to solve the original issue.

To me a "dead" USB2 port seems like a much worse issue for a user
than a BIOS disabled port waking up on plug/unplug (wake on connect/disconnect),
so I'm myself in favor of doing this revert.

But there was a strong push from Promontory developers to get the original fix in,
and I would like to get some comment from them before I do anything about it.

Thanks
