Comment 0 for bug 1210858

VaioT Series Ultrabook laptap USB 2.0 ports not working. They have power (as evidenced when plugging in phone) but no events are "firing" once device is plugged in. They appear in lsusb and lspci, watching dmesg and udev when plugging in a device yields no results/events. USB 3.0 works perfectly. This appears to be the same issue as #1172908, but users were advised to report again/per user by penalvch. So here goes...
Thanks
