Fix for this issue
A commit references this bug:
Date: Tue Jan 9 19:41:10 UTC 2018
New revision: 327736
Add XHCI support to powerpc64 GENERIC. This is useful to get input devices
supported on newer POWER hardware and in graphical VMs run on the same,
which are typically XHCI-only. The 32-bit GENERIC kernel, which
does not run on hardware made in the last decade and is unlikely to
encounter XHCI devices, is left unchanged.
