No, not that I can tell. "0000:00:1d.0" is the USB hub/controller, right?

The idea is to use the uhci_hcd (USB1) driver instead of ehci_hcd
(USB2). -- Maybe the module is not loaded?

 `lsmod | grep  uhci_hcd`
 `ls /sys/bus/pci/drivers/uhci_hcd/`

If they're modules: `rmmod ehci_hcd; modprobe uhci_hcd`; that'll force
all USB ports into 1.X mode; may be worth a try before playing with
dedicated per port bindings.

Anyway, there might be something else going on: as both Karsten and
Clemens noted, these "Intel Corporation Cougar Point [..] controllers
use a different driver" and "There have been fixes recently.  Try
updating the kernel."
