It seems like you have compiled L4Linux with native USB support. So L4
Linux tries to use the real HC hardware, and like that causes a reset of
the host-controller. 
   Actually L4IO should not allow L4Linux to access hw-ressources L4IO
allready has given away.  It seems this is not the case here, maybe
because your linux is running on a higher privilege level caused by an
'allow_cli' in your L4Linux loader configuration.
   For now i suggest to compile L4Linux without USB support. A virtual
host-controller driver for L4linux that uses usbcore is on the way.

Ciao, Dirk
