In my opinion, it's not ports problem. Last 2months it was good condition. 2days ago, i upadted to new fedora26 kernel. Problems occured after that. of course just personal opinion...

If a kernel update causes this again, file a bug in bugzilla.

A PS/2 keyboard is not going to cause a problem with your USB. If you're also having trouble with flash drives, then it sounds like a general USB problem. What does lspci | grep USB show?

Also, you should still have older kernels available. Reboot the computer and choose one of the other kernel options and see if that solves the problem.
