There is an issue that somewhere grub misses a delay between uhci
commands. When enabling debug=all this hang goes away. My laptop has
this issue too. I hope to have time soon to fix it

This makes a lot of sense, the UHCI controller may require some time
for processing certain commands before it can accept the next one, and
tracing slows things down enough to let the controller catch up.  It's
a very good sign (for having a fix soon) that one of the major
programmers has not only reproduced the problem but is affected by it.
