What used to happen in hardy was that the micro SD drive would just automount.

Hopefully it will get attention there. You may want to also post data about your hardware.
 Please see http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/docs/lkml/reporting-bugs.html and follow the form the same way that I did. This will most likely get their attention.

It seems that there is some sort of race condition. I was able to get the
usb-storage driver to work, but it still seems to crash. I wrote a basic
script to rmmod all the related device drivers, then load them up in a specific
order, with a sleep statement.

Here is the script:

===== cut ========
rmmod usb_storage
rmmod option
rmmod usbserial
echo "sleeping for 2 seconds to let the drivers unload...." && sleep 2
modprobe option
echo "sleeping for 2 seconds to make usb_storage detect the storage device..."
&& sleep 2 && echo "done sleeping"
modprobe usb_storage
===== cut ========

If I set the sleep time to 10 seconds, the usb_storage device isn't detected.
If I take out the "sleep 2", then the usb_storage device isn't detected either.
 So it seems there needs to be a delay after the "option" module is loaded in
order for usb_storage to see the storage device. What doesn't make sense is
that if you wait more than 10 seconds after the "option" driver is loaded, then
usb_storage can't see the storage device.

Here is dmesg (something is still crashing):

I dont think this is a duplicate bug, different device.

Same here - modem works fine while usb-storage fails on jaunty, latest updates installed:
with 2.6.28-13-server kernel.

My device is
Bus 001 Device 015: ID 12d1:1003 Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. E220 HSDPA Modem / E270 HSDPA/HSUPA Modem
(Vodafone Websession Stick)

On my eeepc, running Easy Peasy 1.1 (I think this is hardy based), both works just fine.
