BCM5880 USB smartcard reader does not work under linux host

Description

Dell E6410 comes equipped with BCM5880 USB smartcard reader. It does not work under linux (ubuntu maverick) and XP as guest (virtualbox 4.0.4). The effect of enabling the device is continuous blinking of USB icon on virtualbox status bar. It works well in vmware. I've used wireshark to capture usb traffic in both virtualbox and vmware.

Same problem here.

Host : Virtualbox 4.1.6 Guest : Ubuntu Lucid

I've updated the firmware with the last one available on Dell site, the problem remains.

Does someone have an idea ?
