  [Vaio T Series SVT15112CXS] USB 2.0 Ports Don't Work

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have a Sony Vaio T-Series laptop. The usb 2.0 ports are not working,
  but the USB 3.0 port does. They appear in lspci and lsusb, but devices
  connected to them do not work. For example, a flash drive w/ a LED on
  it lights up and mounts on the 3.0 port but doesn't even light up on
  the 2.0 ports. There are no messages in dmesg when something is
  plugged into the 2.0 port. This behavior is the same on ubuntu 12.10
  and 13.04.
