Thanks Richard, your post put me on the right track to understanding 
exactly what the problem was.

To the original poster: Assuming our problems were caused by the same 
issue, you could try fixing it the way I did. I recompiled a new kernel 
using the old .config file, but wherever I saw a USB option selected as 
a module, I chose to compile it into the kernel instead.

Unless you really want to use modules for your USB stuff, this bypasses 
the problem altogether.
