Kernel panic in usb-storage w/Quantal kernel in Precise
Last week I replaced the internals of my desktop computer with a new ASUS P8H77-M PRO, Intel G2120 and 16 GB RAM. With one round of Memtest passed, I booted into my old Precise install and got bit hard by what appears to be Bug #993187: frequent hard lockups (multiple within a few hours of use). I installed linux-image-generic-lts-quantal (currently 184.108.40.206.29) and that seemed to resolve the lockups: I got more than two days of uptime (ending with an intended shutdown), half of which I was actively using the computer.
This morning, soon (half an hour?) after login, the kernel paniced with a reference to usb-storage (I’ll attach a picture). This was different from the lockups with the stock Precise (3.2) kernel: with them I never had any panics shown (only the frozen desktop) and the system had to be powered off to reboot, whereas with the panic here I could reboot using the chassis reset button.
There’s some USB activity in syslog just prior to the panic (Jan 7 at around 10:50), but I wasn’t using any USB devices at the time. I have used them with this kernel previously though, without issues, and currently am too (to transfer the panic picture from my phone). There’s a memory card reader/USB port panel (Akasa AK-ICR-17) permanently plugged into internal USB 2 and 3.
