usbkbd.o missing (was present in 2.4.7)

Description of problem:
There is a long hang at boot-up during the usb part of
the initialization scripts. Boot-up proceeds after several
minutes, but my usb keyboard doesn't work after boot-up
I notice that kernel 2.4.7 (RedHat 7.2) includes the module
usbkbd.o, but the new kernel does not. I used the Redhat
kernel configuration file to rebuild the kernel, but added
support for the usbkbd.o module.
This kernel was able to boot fine and
produced a working keyboard.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Reboot with the new 7.3 kernel
Actual Results: Suspends on usb initialization.
Expected Results: Should not have suspended on usb initialization.
The decision on usbkbd was made and it is not coming back.
We must investigate why hid fails to work on user's machine.
See also Bug 55878.
I would like to see the dmesg output of the problematic kernel.
Please attach it to the bug, but do not drop it into the comment box.
Also, please attach the contents of /proc/bus/usb/devices,
preferably on both 2.4.18-3 and 2.4.18-3custom.

output of /proc/bus/usb/devices when using 2.4.18custom
I was unable to obtain /proc/bus/usb/devices after booting 2.4.18-3 as
I do not have keyboard control in that case and thus could
not access the file. The computer is firewalled
so I can't log in remotely.
Sorry about the delay in submitting the report. I have not had a good
opportunity for rebooting the machine.
Thanks! Single /proc/bus/usb/devices is enough - I need it
to identify the keyboard and controller.
Pity to hit it on production box and we cannot experiment.
I'll try to squeeze something from the dmesg outputs.
Please try the kernel from the latest beta,
it has a fix for 55878. It may be the same thing.
Get it from ftp.redhat.com,
Unfortunately, I see no change with kernel-2.4.18-7.80.i386.rpm.
There still is a hang of a few minutes at boot during USB intialization
and they keyboard is dead when the boot is complete.
Did anyone with this problem try 2.4.20-18.7 yet?
