ok, the other two changes look fine. 

This disabling is fine if the kernel can later re-enable, but I doubt the 
kernel will do that. We need a way to make this usb enable/disable visible 
at configuration time, so people can turn on/off as needed, unless usb2.0 
on the 8111 NEVER work. I am willing to guess it will work someday, and 
this built-in disable will come back to bite us.
