USB code changed, right? Perhaps an unchange is in order?

I was pretty sure I saw a heads-up, and lo I did:
I have just merged in most of the lowest level changes to 4.x from
If you use USB on 4.x machines and are planning on following RELENG_4
then I suggest you test the latest sources to avoid nasty surprises
I will probably merge some of the actual device drivers as well,
though I have limited resources for testing them..
Currently, I find my P4 hanging just after discovering the parallel
port and mounting disk; in other words, just here:
ppc0: parallel port not found.
ad0: 28629MB <ST330620A> [58168/16/63] at ata0-master UDMA100
but ->only<- when my Logitech USB mouse is plugged in. Now, if I
unplug it and hit reset (not Ctrl-Alt-Del; the keyboard is frozen) the
system boots, and I can obtain X w/ a functional mouse. Yesterday, of
course, prior to the USB change the system did not hang.
I noticed that some code was changed in between my discovery of the
hanging and my attempt to fix it:
Apr 27 21:15 subr_bus.c
but this change, and the subsequent world update, did not solve the
issue of the hanging mouse.
See, I know I've only myself to blame for missing the announcement
and/or starting an upgrade in an interstice between stability and
apparent instability. But still...test first, deploy later, perhaps?
Kernel bits, had them for a couple of years now:
With my luck, it's probably not the mouse after all.
Thanks for any help you can offer. Now, off to read more of Blue Mars.
I don't care what you think. This is not a stylishly insouciant stroll
out of the jungle, here. It's more like we've fallen out of our trees
and rolled, butt-naked before the entire galaxy, downhill. That, and
we seem to have a teensy problem lifting ourselves off the ground.
