Found out some more info after unpacking the libnjb source files (i had
been using a gnomad2 rpm which included libnjb):

I also found this, which i don't know if it's relevant, but during boot up after this started happening again,
I noticed it said something about an irq when loading the usb devices:

> Q:  Why doesn't USB work at all? I get "device not accepting address".
> A: You may have some problem with your PCI setup that's preventing your USB host controller from getting hardware interrupts. When Linux submits a request, but never hears back from the controller, this is the diagnostic you'll see. To see if this is the problem, look at /proc/interrupts to see if the interrupt count for your host controller driver ever goes up. If it doesn't, this is the problem: either your BIOS isn't telling the truth to Linux (ACPI sometimes confuses these things, or setting the expected OS to windows in your BIOS), or Linux doesn't understand what it's saying. 

here's my listing for that - is it usual to have ethernet, usb and soundcard all on the one irq?
