At the end of the day it turned out that this was an issue in the
FreeBSD' drivers and/or some raise conditions or electrical problem. I
removed some of the drivers which were searching the USB bus for devices
and now have only the XHCI driver in the kernel (disabled UHCI, OHCI and EHCI)
and with this, the detection of both cards (uTrust and Omnikey) is fine.
