Nothing to be sorry about.  This is -current afterall.

Yes, I did the bisection to find that r273872 exposes the problem.
What I don't know is if this is hardware specific to a Dell Latitude
D530 laptop, USB specific, or some weird interaction between the
random and USB.

What I also find odd is that I seem to be the only person seeing
this behavior when it is trivial for me to reproduce: boot laptop,
plug in usb device, wait usb recognizes the device, then unplug 
the device.

If you have not read the entire thread, once the laptop keyboard and
video output lock up, I can ssh into the laptop.  If I run usbconfig,
it hangs, ^T tells me it is stuck in SX Lock, and the /dev/da0* devices
have not been destroyed.
