Re: kernel: xhci_hcd 0000:00:14.0: ERROR unknown event type 37 - Kernel 4.19.13

I'm only posting to say I'm still waiting...
The error came up while I slept, and when I copied that log and looked
at it (yes, it WAS huge, just as you said), the timestamps at the
head/tail were much later than the journal logged times.
So I made a little script to monitor the journal kernel entries for
that message and have it copy the file after maybe 5 seconds. And now,
I'm just waiting for that error to occur again.
