  lsusb hangs

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When plugging an external sound card into USB3 ports on my ASUSTeK
  P9X79 motherboard, lsusb hangs and the usb device no longer works.  If
  I plug the sound card into a USB2 port, lsusb does not hang but the
  device is not detected and there are 0 messages printed in dmesg.

  bash$ strace lsusb -v
  munmap(0x7fa344ff3000, 4096)            = 0
  open("/sys/bus/usb/devices/usb3/descriptors", O_RDONLY) = 6

  It hangs on this read and Ctrl-C cannot kill it until I unplug the usb

  This device was working until maybe 1-2 months ago, I believe when
  signed UEFI kernels started getting pushed to LTS although that is
  just a guess on my part.  I've tried falling back but I can't find a
  kernel that works anymore.

  bash$ uname -a
  3.13.0-74-generic x86_64

  bash$ lsb_release -a
  No LSB modules are available.
  Distributor ID:	Ubuntu
