Another solution might be to buy a cheap 1.1 USB hub and
connect your device to that hub, forcing the port to use
USB 1.1 instead of 2.0.

Uhm, well, thinking about it ...  Why not just remove EHCI
from your kernel, leaving only OHCA or UHCI?  Without EHCI
you won't get USB 2.0 support, forcing the system to use
1.1 only.
