The fix below with ehci->need_io_watchdog set to 0 locks up.

Both systems are SMP.

desktop:
2.6.38.8 #11 SMP Tue Jun 12 18:47:20 PDT 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux

laptop:
2.6.38-15-generic #60~lucid1-Ubuntu SMP Wed May 23 15:04:42 UTC 2012
x86_64 GNU/Linux

To add another data point, I ran the code on a machine with
USB Controller: nVidia Corporation MCP79 EHCI USB 2.0 Controller (rev b1)
and kernel
2.6.32-41-generic #89-Ubuntu SMP Fri Apr 27 22:18:56 UTC 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux
and it worked.  I ran it for over 1000 cycles without issue.
