USB3 Western Digital external HDD no longer detected after upgrade to 3.5.4 kernel


Hi All,
I'm having a difficult time troubleshooting my USB3 HDD problem and was hoping for some help. After upgrading my kernel from 3.2.28 to 3.5.4-generic using Pat's config-generic in testing, my USB3 external HDD is no longer detected. If I plug it into a 2.0 port it is detected. If I plug any other device in the 3.0 port, they are detected. If I boot with the 3.2.29 kernel the USB3.0 HDD is detected on the 3.0 port. Just the Western Digital device is not detected in the USB3 port when booting from 3.5.4. Is this a bug in the kernel. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Here's my dmesg. I did a bunch of google searches on warnings, but couldn't find a solution.

The only culprit I can think of is the xhci-hcd kernel module.

On my Slackware 13.37 "modinfo xhci-hcd" returns
Code:
filename:       /lib/modules/2.6.37.6-smp/kernel/drivers/usb/host/xhci-hcd.ko
license:        GPL
author:         Sarah Sharp
description:    'eXtensible' Host Controller (xHC) Driver
alias:          pci:v*d*sv*sd*bc0Csc03i30*
depends:        
vermagic:       2.6.37.6-smp SMP mod_unload 686 
parm:           link_quirk:Don't clear the chain bit on a link TRB (int)
I would compare "modinfo xhci-hcd" on both 3.2.29 & 3.5.4 kernels and maybe try to fiddle with the module parameter(s).

You can also blacklist that module and see what happens. Normally you shouldn't have USB 3 without it though.

EDIT Or conversely you could load the module manually before plugging in the drive and see what happens. If that works, just have it loaded at start up.
