live usb image boot hangs on eeepc with "usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning"

Description of problem:
This is relatively new - a couple of weeks ago this took a few seconds, but it
did continue. Now it hangs completely.
I'm generating live usb images from current rawhide. Boot on eeepc (haven't
tried anything else lately) hangs at:
usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning
It appears to find the device fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I don't understand "it appears to find the device fine". What "it"?
Why don't you boot without "quiet" on the command line and then
snap a picture?
"it" being the kernel - earlier on the screen you see the USB device being detected.
Without quiet on the command line I get:
usbcore: registered new interface driver usb-storage
USB Mass Storage support registered.
no root yet, udev rule will write symlink...
waiting up to 60 seconds before dropping to emergency shell.
and it hangs there.
Tested on another machine and it boots.
Sorry, this is a side effect of other problems with livecd-creator
Glad to hear that. It was a puzzle for me.
