I think you should log a kernel bug on this one. The dump clearly
shows that you plugged in the device, modules loaded correctly then 1
min 20 seconds later the kernel gave up. Supply that dump with your
bug report, along with a full description of your hardware, including
chipset on the m/b and writer model. Also note if you can which
kernel previously did work and the current one that doesn't work.
