Well, there were separate and similar USB probs fixed for me by recent
But looking closer at your error reports, it is reminding me of something I
read a few weeks ago about max packet sizes, or max buffer sizes for
different USB <-> ATA chipsets? Some can handle 128KB, some 64KB, something
like that. I think it was someone's patch reducing the limit in kernel
sources on a ml I was looking at.

Glad I was of some help. Yeah it should be more graceful.

I get the same behaviour as you on some laptops and not others here. Makes me
think it can be (video) BIOS or video driver related as well as ACPI.
