Forced to 3.11

No, not to this 3.11, but to Linux kernel 3.11.

I was aware of the #718533 bug, which happens when you have a software RAID with anything higher than 3.2.0 (mine is RAID 1 with 2 disks). At least that has been my case since I tried to upgrade, hence I was delaying upgrades again and again.

Unfortunately today things went worse when I tried to plug my USB 3.0 device on the system:

Oct 20 17:52:51 busgosu kernel: [20799.672127] xhci_hcd 0000:02:00.0: Timeout while waiting for address device command
Oct 20 17:52:51 busgosu kernel: [20799.876136] xhci_hcd 0000:02:00.0: ERROR no room on ep ring

And of course the device didn't show up. As there's not much relevant stuff about this issue on the googlesphere, thought it may have been solved. And turned out that I was right: upgrading fixes this, and now the device works again.

But, hit by the above bug now I have to add a rootdelay=1 to my kernel boot parameters (started testing with 5 but finally seems one second is enough). Fortunately the Ubuntu folks have detailed how to do it ;-)
