It's an separate PCI card and it has the latest Adaptec BIOS 2.20.

No, nothing in that area. At the moment I think it has to do with the 
usb code in the 5.2 kernel. The problem is I don't have an idea how to 
further debug.

Do you know an USB-coding-expert, who can debug this with me?
Would be nice to have a mouse even when changing to 5.2 ;-)

Best regards and merry christmas
