The hub itself disconnects the device electronically, the kernel does
not do that.  When the device comes back, then it is initialized by the
kernel, as the logs show, but then it is disconnected again.

This really looks like broken hardware or electronic noise on the
connection, the kernel can not cause electronic disconnects on a USB hub
like this.

good luck!
