Diagnostic patch for 2.6.11
It looks like your system is hanging during pci_set_master. The attached patch
will help test exactly where the hang occurs.
Last line on the screen was: uhci_hcd 0000:00:1d:0 Before reset

More UHCI diagnostics for 2.6.11
No "after reset" message? Try using this patch in addition to the other one.
Hopefully it will show exactly where in the reset routine things stop working.
The last log was "D". Before sleep?
Before a sleep, yes, but while the Global Reset bit is on. I can't think of any
reason why this should crash your system. Or why it should crash only during
As a workaround, you could try making uhci-hcd a module. It would be
interesting to see if modprobe crashes when the mouse is already plugged in.
Same bug in 2.6.12 :(
Did you take my advice to make uhci-hcd a module? If you then boot with the
mouse plugged in, does the system hang when you load uhci-hcd.ko?
2 months since last response, I'm closing this.
If this is still an issue on 2.6.13-rc6 or greater, please do as Alan asked and
try it with uhci as a module and reopen this bug.
