Hi Dominique,
Thanks for your suggestion and help.
I've tried my VIA VT6212L USB2.0 PCI card on other
Linux system(x86 based) (RedHat 7.2 + kernel 2.4.16). 
And it works fine under kernel 2.4.16 with an USB
patch from kernel 2.4.26.
So I migrated the system to MIPS, but I was stuck by
this problem.
Altough I'm not familiar with device driver, but I
will try Jan-Benedict's suggestion.

BRs, 
 Joseph
