If this is a problem it's RedHat-specific, not a kernel bug. I always run both ide-scsi and usb-storage simultaneously without problems. I've done this since at least linux 2.4.6.

I only run pure kernels from www.kernel.org, never distributor-modified versions. You might want to try and see if that helps you. Surprisingly many linux problems are due to distributor kernel modifications.
