[Bug 1435028] Re: Kernel does not detect already connected USB devices on boot



I freshly installed 15.04 about a week ago (my kernel is
19.0-22-generic) and am experiencing similiar behaviour, with some
additional symptoms to those described already:

- When the problem occurs for me, startup time spent on the loading screen ("colored dots") goes up from less than a second to about 1+ minute
- When the login screen is finally reached, I am not able to do anything (except cut power and hope it does not occur on the next boot) because un- and re-plugging any usb devices does nothing at all (my keyboard gets power, but is not recognized, same for mouse)

If I can provide any additional info to help with this, please let me
know. Just like jhe, I didn't yet see any logic regarding how this
problem is triggered so far.

  Kernel does not detect already connected USB devices on boot

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The kernel does not always detect already connected USB devices on
  boot. I have an USB nic and an external mouse connected to my Laptop.
  Sometimes these devices are recognized after boot, sometimes they are

  When they are not present after boot you have to unplug them and plug them again. This is inconvient and adds physical wear on the USB connectors.
  The kernel log shows no sign of a disconnect, so it seems the kernel does not recognize the devices as plugged in on boot.
