usb-storage messages flood /var/log/messages


I am getting great masses of usb-storage messages in /var/log/messages. I do not have CONFIG_USB_STORAGE_DEBUG set. I have not recompiled the kernel for several days, and the problem has only just started.

The problem is intermittent. If I insert an SD card in the netbook's slot, the messages start, and stop when the card is removed. If re-inserted, the message may or may not continue.

The only change I'm aware of is I installed usb-modeswitch to deal with a Telstra USB wireless modem. It did not work. I removed the .rules file but not the programs.
Code:

What's happening here?

I think installing usb-modeswitch must have corrupted a file or replaced one with an incompatible copy.

I ran
Code:
emerge -av `qlist -I -C | grep usb -`
and the problem is gone.
