This bug is for just aic users. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=218369 will be for generic or usb issues depending on what we figure out.

Peter Wainwright was using usb, so I am removing from this aic bugzilla so he does not have to listen to that noise.

aic bug reporters/users can remove themselves from https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=218369 if they want.
