There is no direct connection between the kernel i2c drivers and
userspace programs that interface to USB devices.
The only potential connection is that your USB root hub might be part
of the same peripheral chip as the i2c bus master (PIIX4-compatible).

Definitely sounds like a kernel problem. When things are working
properly, lsusb should not hang.
The best place to debug this is probably with your Linux distribution
support channels (and you will need to give them much more specific
information about your kernel version). There may be an interrupt
issue with the i2c drivers. If you have another way of getting the
sensor information (such as IPMI) you might want to look into that
