--- Comment #18 from Johannes Meixner <jsmeix@xxxxxxxx> ---
Regarding comment#16 about using differnt USB kernel drivers:

I am neither a USB expert nor a kernel expert but according to
it seems in general it is not possible to use other USB
kernel drivers than those that are automatically used.

As far as I know nowadays USB3 capable hardware in the computer
is different compared to traditional USB2 hardware in the computer
so that for USB3 only xhci_hcd works but xhci_hcd does not work
for traditional USB2.

Note that I am talking about the USB3 chips versus USB2 chips
in the computer i.e. the hardware where the USB kernel drivers
are used for.

One can nevertheless connect a USB2 device to a USB3 connector.
Then the USB3 chips in the computer (with the xhci_hcd kernel driver)
are used for a USB2 device that is connected to a USB3 port,
cf. the section about "USB Speed" in
