[Bug 1485057] Re: "lsusb -v" as root freezes the kernel on Acer ES1-111; also freeze on shutdown

There are no /sys/.../power/ files, because CONFIG_PM is disabled.
This kernel does not freeze, so the debug output on unbinding is contained in the attached dmesg log.

** Attachment added: "dmesg from a corresponding 4.2 kernel, CONFIG_PM disabled"

  "lsusb -v" as root freezes the kernel on Acer ES1-111; also freeze on

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  reproducible: always

  Steps to reproduce:
  - open a terminal
  - sudo bash
  - lsusb -v

  In a virtual terminal, the command prints the name of the first device
  it finds, then the system freezes completely. In a terminal of the
  desktop, I don't even get the name of the device, the system freezes
  immediately. Either way, I have to power off the machine. There is no
  kernel oops. Nothing is written to the log. The magic sysreq key
  yields no response, although I have verified that it works before
  triggering the freeze.

  I've narrowed down the problem by calling "lsusb -v -s <device>". The
  system freezes on both devices of bus 3 (003:001 and 003:002). For all
  other devices, it prints the expected output and continues to work.
  When calling lsusb as a regular user, I get "Couldn't open device,
  some information will be missing", then the regular output, and the
  system keeps running. Therefore I assume that the problem is somewhere
  in the kernel, when the devices are accessed.

  This is a regression. It used to work in 14.10, and fails to work since 15.04.
  It also used to work in 14.04.2, and fails in 14.04.3.
  It fails with mainline builds 4.2.0-rc6-unstable, 4.2.0-rc2-unstable, 4.1.0-rc2-vivid. (yeah, I've been trying for a while :-)

  Incidentally, the shutdown sequence also freezes with the kernels that
  exhibit the problem; but I cannot be sure that the cause is the same.
  I decided to first chase the USB freeze, because it was easier to
  gather information about that.
