started getting these, and was not paying attention, as I am normally doing something else while the computer boots. Nothing seems to be broken, usb mouse, keyboard and ups are all communicating. Plug in usb to phone, and it sees it. Plug in usb hard drive, mounts. Everything works, but it is taking much longer to boot, because of the messages.

Fedora 27 is the current os, kernel 4.13.12.-300. Tried adding irqpoll to command line in grub, no change. took out iommu and added acpi all to no avail. any ideas?

Your system cannot supply enough power to the device.

What device? the only active devices are mouse and keyboard, and both work.

Some device, error -110 is when an usb hub cannot provide enough power to the connected device which cannot identify itself and so the device descriptor error.
