The new 4.19 kernel is causing trouble

A "kworker" process is hogging my CPU. I have to go back to 4.18 kernel to resolve this issue.

UPDATE (01/24/2019)

The solution is amazingly simple. Follow this post:

  1. Install perf;
  2. sudo perf record -g -a sleep 10
  3. sudo perf report
Scrolling down the records, it looks like the problem is related to my USB hub. Unplug the hub and the problem goes away.
