I have vague memories of encountering this same issue with the GX280 and
Sun JDS (based on SUSE). The problem
was that it was loading both the usb-ohci and usb-ehci modules.
Sometimes they manage co-exist okay, sometimes they don't.
Removing one of them from loading during the boot process solved all the
USB issues. I can't remember which one and my apologies
that I can't provide solid details - it's been quite a while since I
worked with a GX280.
