Sorry that there have been some inconvenience, but it's unavoidable to 
temporarily break a few things during the ongoing USB3/xHCI work on trunk.

The USB backend changes aren't finalized, there might be more to come. 
We have a few cases which don't work (e.g. support for UASP), and it's 
hard to predict how far the necessary changes have to ripple through.

Easiest way is sending them to this mailing list, we'll apply them as 
quickly as possible.
