Yes, you are missing the subfs module. You should:

(1) Install the submount source rpm

(2) Do a "rpmbuild -bp <spec_file>"

(3) Recompile the module for your kernel located at

Also, if your new kernel is not a SUSE kernel, boot logging won't work. You
will need to patch the kernel with the tiocgdev patch. Beware though the patch
will fail at the file tty_io.c. That file needs to be patched manually.

Not too sure about your usb problem though without more details.
