If you look at the top of usb_process() in sys/dev/usb/usb_process.c, then you 
see there is some code to do priority settings. Recently something about the 
USB processes/threads was changed in USB regard, and I don't know if this 
might be the cause. Andrew, you might want to check if the priority settings 
in the USB code are still valid.

I'm currently using the BSD scheduler, not ULE.
