If possible, could you try updating to the latest 5.x-STABLE? I've
just finished merging all of the recent changes from -CURRENT, so
there is a good chance that things might work better now.

By the way, did you have `device ehci' compiled into your kernel?
The support for EHCI controllers is what should be most improved
by the recent updates.
