Since the update USB 3 devices stopped working.
Reverting to 3.10.2 makes them working again.

Additional info:
Log attached.
Connecting USB 2 devices seems to work still.

I have similar problem after 3.10.3 kernel upgrade (usb reset several times, and access to my memorystick reader is slow) but my USB2 devices works with proper speed.

UPDATE: On 3.10.4 (and 3.11-rc1-3) USB system behaviour is the same.

I have also such problem with 3.10.3 kernel.
Comment by Alberto Gonzalez (Luis) - Monday, 29 July 2013, 14:15 GMT
Same here, working fine with 3.10.2, but not with 3.10.3.
Comment by Max (homernl82) - Tuesday, 30 July 2013, 09:38 GMT
Same here. Though I did not update quite some time before, so downgrading would be a huge effort. Please fix this soon :)

Guys report this upstream, I cannot do anything here.
Comment by Alberto Gonzalez (Luis) - Tuesday, 30 July 2013, 10:06 GMT
Yes, this should be reported upstream. There are few commits from 3.10.2 to 3.10.3, so it shouldn't be too difficult to find the culprit. Is anyone here any good at compiling/patching kernels, git-bisecting, etc...? For myself this would be a major pain, so I cannot be so helpful reporting upstream. But if none else here is comfortable with those things either, then I'll do it and do my best to help.

Ok, it seems the bug is found and there is a patch that fixes it. Should be in the next stable kernel.

I cannot plug in any usb sticks into my USB2.0 port on 3.10.3. 3.10.4 acts likewise.
The USB sticks are functional after reverting back to 3.10.2.

It seems that the patch mentioned above didn't make it into the upcoming 3.10.5:

Would it be possible in this case to just include it in Arch's kernel? So we don't stay 2 weeks with this ugly bug hanging around. Just asking.
Comment by Olivier (olive) - Friday, 09 August 2013, 12:25 GMT
Same problem as Mike (teacher4711) with 3.10.5-1. Usb (2.0) keys (at least some one) do not work. The device file /dev/sdb appears but it cannot be read. Strange enough, my external usb2.0 hard drives seems to work properly. Downgrading to 3.10.2 fix the problem.

Same as Olivier here.
Comment by Alberto Gonzalez (Luis) - Sunday, 11 August 2013, 10:19 GMT
For some reason the patch still didn't make it into a stable kernel (3.10.6 won't have it either). Here is the upstream report:

Here is a src.tar for building a patched kernel. stock + usb patch
It works for me.

The problem is still there in 3.14.4; I haven't seen a USB 3.0 drive work for >6 months. :-(

Closing this again, the patch mentioned in bug report is upstream, if it is still not working open a new upstream report with your data.
