even then, copying data to a slow USB drive can lead to minute-long stalls of the entire system. Very embarrassing that this is still such an issue on linux. I am not sure if it is a hardware problem or a software one...
Have you seen this issue recently? I'm sure I read an LWN article a year or two ago where it was described how this issue was tracked down to a change in the I/O buffer window sizing or something similar (and fixed).
