USB with kernel 3.13.5-bone5

I recall USB support being limited with kernel 3.8, but I’m using Debian with 3.13.5-bone5 (Robert’s), and it still seems to have issues. Should 3.13 be working properly (hotplug, etc.), or is it still a little rough? I need to connect my BBB to five USB devices–will I have to have them all plugged into the hub at startup time? Should I expect other problems besides hotplug?

I am still having issues with 3.13.5-bone5 USB particulary with UVC video in DMA mode. I found switching to PIO only worked much better.
