That was short-lived!  After reboot, it no longer worked.  Not only 
that, but sync doesn't work when not using the hub either.

I put the old usbcore back in place hoping that I'd at least be able to 
sync from the regular usb port.  It doesn't work.  I tried varying 
timings after hitting HotSync.  Grrr.

So I did a search for a hub module and found 8250_hub6.  I modprobed 
that and it synced from the hub no less!  I thought that was great until 
I found that I can not duplicate it after many tries.  So I still 
haven't figured out what makes this work.

Whoa.  Ok, on a whim I just tried a modprobe visor and it is syncing off 
the hub.  It seems that loading a module makes it work--maybe just 
reloading visor.  I'm not able so far to duplicate this consistently.  I 
like Ubuntu and want to use it.  I'll keep at it.  But it does seem that 
the usbcore is not the answer for me.
