I'm using USB storage entirely for my new setup (well, except for a 
smallish boot disk), and have noticed problems with md for SUB devices 
connected to the machine via a USB hub.

Is this just my hub (although I tried a couple), my Via PCI controller, 
or is using a hub with usb storage not generally recommended?

If I can get hubs working reliably, then I might just have to pickup one 
of these:


Given they run Linux and have replaceable firmware...

Any pointers greatly appreciated.
