[Bug 1513930] Re: linux-firmware breaks support for Lenovo Z580


It seems unlikely that a linux-firmware update would be responsible for
all the symptoms you've described since it provides nothing which should
be related to recognizing USB devices. I can help you debug further but
only if you're willing to run 15.10 on your machine. So for now I'm
going to mark this bug invalid; if you change your mind about running
15.10 please reopen this bug.

  linux-firmware breaks support for Lenovo Z580

Status in linux-firmware package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The latest update (2015.11.06) for Ubuntu 15.10 linux-firmware breaks
  support for the Lenovo Z580 laptop.  USB devices stop being recognized
  and the network card/chipset cease functioning, preventing you from
  getting online.  I've had to reinstall Ubuntu 15.04 in order to get
  back to a working state, and will no longer consider upgrading to
  15.10 again until I am forced to do so by the 15.04 EOL.
