Can you describe the sequence of events which
happened before the hang?
Was the device detached before or during lsusb?
Perhaps try echo t > /proc/sysrq-trigger to see
where exactly lsusb gets stuck.
I found processes can get stuck in usb_kill_urb
if they tried to unlink an URB, but the unlink
request was not answered before detach.
Perhaps this is related. I am attaching a patch
which fixes that bug for me, perhaps you could
try if it makes a difference?

Agreed, it doesn't seem like a TCP error is
causing the hang in this case.
