Thanks for the experiments, Paul.

Ettus R&D is currently working this issue.

I've also run the B200 on the haswell Intel NUC which also has the series 8/C210 USB 3.0 controller.  I haven't seen this issue yet on the NUC but I don't have a lot of runtime on it yet.

Basically while running an RX operation (osmocom_fft or uhd_fft) the B210 will sporadically disconnect from the USB 3.0 hub and then it will immediately reconnect. I can see this in dmesg and /var/log/syslog. It was suggested to me that this may be a power brown out issue since I have a TCXO GPSDO module mounted on board, but I observe the same error even while connected to wall power through the standard 6V, 3A power supply. Here is the console output I see.
