Comment (by archaic at linuxfromscratch.org):

 The bugreports are indeed what you had asked for. There was very little
 change in all of the different combinations you asked for. Anyway, with
 the new loop instructions things became much better. After 7 boots without
 a usb device plugged in (but with usbcore and hid still loading) there
 were no failures. Once I plugged in my mouse I got  5 boots without and 4
 boots with the error. Everytime there was an error, it appears the problem
 was with the kernel assigning a location for the device. Here's the

 uhci_hcd 0000:00:10.2: UHCI Host Controller
 uhci_hcd 0000:00:10.2: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 3
 uhci_hcd 0000:00:10.2: irq 9, io base 0x00001c40
 hub 3-0:1.0: USB hub found
 hub 3-0:1.0: 2 ports detected
 usb 1-2: new low speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 2
 ACPI: PCI Interrupt Link [LNKD] enabled at IRQ 11
 PCI: setting IRQ 11 as level-triggered
 ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:10.3[D] -> Link [LNKD] -> GSI 11 (level, low)
 -> IRQ 11
 PCI: Via IRQ fixup for 0000:00:10.3, from 0 to 11
 ehci_hcd 0000:00:10.3: EHCI Host Controller
 ehci_hcd 0000:00:10.3: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 4
 ehci_hcd 0000:00:10.3: irq 11, io mem 0xd0004800
 ehci_hcd 0000:00:10.3: USB 2.0 started, EHCI 1.00, driver 10 Dec 2004
 usb 1-2: unable to read config index 0 descriptor/start
 usb 1-2: can't read configurations, error -71

 After this, the kernel reassigns usb 1-2 to another address successfully.
 Again, it seems this delay is prompting the bugreport because on the boots
 which assign the device correctly the 1st time, there is no bugreport.
 Also, the bugreport is now reduced to just usb stuff, but I am attaching
 it in case you want to see it.
