[ 1005.288846] usbcore: registered new interface driver usb-storage
[ 1005.296004] usbcore: registered new interface driver uas

does anybody know why is that? Both PC have usbcore.autosuspend = 2 I guess it has something to do with Direct-Access ?

  • It's possible there is an F25/F26 difference here, not a Workstation/Server one... – mattdm Jan 4 '18 at 22:32
