[Bug 1371233] Re: USB 3.0 connection is unreliable + xHCI xhci_drop_endpoint called with disabled ep


I was able to upgrade to kernel version 3.13.0-74-generic (Ubuntu 14.04
LTS) from and everything appears to work fine (i.e. no
messages and no lost USB connections) with nox2apic set.  I copied
hundreds of gigabytes back and forth on USB 3 drives without any
problems and a binary compare of the results showed the copies were
exact.   Unfortunately I can't upgrade any further than that as the next
version, Ubuntu 14.10, is now obsolete and the next LTS version isn't
out yet; so my installation won't upgrade at all right now.  I'm stuck
unless I want to do an install from scratch.

Bug description:
  based on https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1358871/comments/7 I tested with the HDD enclosure IcyBox IB-351 series with USB 3.0 connection with the same result (connection drops after 300 MB reading, error message "xHCI xhci_drop_endpoint called with disabled ep" occurs sometimes, other devices (e.g. Samsung HD103SI 1 TB HDD connected with 3.0 USB adapter to eSATA of enclosure) read hundreds of GB before failing, but definitely do before reading 1TB). Reading tested with `dd`, `gpart` and `btrfsck`.
  Also confirmed on Lenovo IdeaPad-Z500 after BIOS update to 71CN51WW(V1.21) (changelog didn't indicate any USB issues anyway). Also confirmed with 3.16.3 and 3.16.0-14 on Ubuntu 14.10-beta1 after updates.
  The issue seems to cause failure of ASIX AX179 gigabit ethernet chip as well, but is independent from the usage of the ethernet adapter.
  I'm without any clue and stuck with an unreliable USB and ethernet connection which basically means no I/O out of the machine!!
