You probably want to post such reuests on the PPC (or the USB) mailin
lists instead. It's actually off topic as far as the ELDK is related.

I think you should instead consider updating your kernel tree to a
current version (2.6.25 or later).

I have yet to see any USB driver code that works reliably on the
MPC82xx USB controllers. We always recommend our customers to use
external USB controllers if they need reliable operation...
