This is a bug from an old kernel (2.6.0). From the kernel lists, the way around seems to be to enable at least one usb host to host option (eg. CONFIG_USB_AN2720). Alternatively, you could try a more recent kernel source, or remove usb network support from the kernel altogether.

For the list details, see
