Two things, make sure you use a USB 2.0 Hub, the ehci port is "hi
speed only" and the ehci/usb is broken for the beagle upstream, it
might finally make it upstream in 2.6.32...

Use this uImage for the time being:
Patch from git sha 58cf2f1 of tmlind's tree:
Defconfig: http://rcn-ee.homeip.net:81/dl/omap/beagle/v2.6.29-58cf2f1-oer40.5/defconfig
