dmesg output from the normally-working kernel (with the above commit reverted).

In Linux 3.0.0-rc5 a bug was introduced into the USB hub driver that causes any form of USB hotplugging to cease working after a USB hub has been unplugged while the system is running.  The dmesg log shows the hub disconnecting normally but does not produce any output for any devices hotplugged in afterward.  Additionally, ACPI suspend fails after this stating that khubd locked up during the suspend process.  I tracked down the issue to commit 95a2424ff9221624c3944f3732f6cfacbb522ae4 (https://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commit;h=95a2424ff9221624c3944f3732f6cfacbb522ae4).  Reverting that commit causes normal behavior to return.

My system is a Dell Vostro 1500 with the Intel ICH8 USB controller.  I don't have any other systems to try reproducing this on at the moment, but if needed, I probably could.  Also, if I can provide any more data, please let me know.

Should now be fixed in Linus's tree, can you test?
