What I'd like to see for the release is that it ships with a kernel
where USB is completely disabled (I mean as an addition to GENERIC).
Otherwise it's just unusable on my laptop :(
Or is there a boot sysctl to disable USB completely?

Have you tried to boot without any USB devices attached ???
That helps me in some cases.
Yes, I tried it. No USB devices attached. But it hangs! Maybe there are 
some internal USB devices like fingerprint-sensor. But I disabled USB
from the BIOS. But that makes no difference (kernel panics). The
only way I can boot is to disable USB completely.
