The cable connecting the webcam and my laptop seems to be broken. As a result, the webcam keeps connecting and disconnecting all the time. Is it possible to disable a USB port?

A sample of the dmesg output. It is really annoying when I'm trying to diagnose other system problems.

Integrated webcam, if you are lucky, can be individually disabled by BIOS.

This solves my problem, but it is not a generic solution.
