Description: when i plug in an USB to UART Converter (CP210x) i get a kernel panic almost instantly without accessing it by myself. As it does NOT occur in Fedora 17 Live-CD (Kernel 3.3.4) i think it is an Arch-related problem. The Problem happend with the switch to version 3.3.1, all 3.2.x kernels (and back to 2.6.33) worked just fine! I also installed linux-3.4 from testing where the problem also occured!

Steps to reproduce: Plug-in a USB Stick with a CP210x converter...

I attached an image of the screen after the crash... if someone knows, how i can get crash logs, please let me know...
This task depends upon

Most likely an upstream issue, please report it there.

Are you still experiencing this? Maybe the fedora kernel had backported stuff in it.
