If that is a failed boot on a custom kernel, it looks like the first place to look at would in menu/g/xconfig would be under "bus" and/or filesystems. How did you arrive at a kernel with no USB support?

For future consideration: your title and question leave a lot of room for guessing. Precision in the title and the question, as well as some background info will get you better help faster.
