[Bug 53972] Re: Via USB and ehci_hcd bug: USB not recognized - IRQ issue


Cedric, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any
activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? If
so, could you please test for this with the latest development release
of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com
/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in
the development release from a Terminal
(Applications->Accessories->Terminal), as it will automatically gather
and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p linux <replace-with-bug-number>

Also, could you please test the latest upstream kernel available (not the daily folder, but the one all the way at the bottom) following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds ? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags:

where VERSION-NUMBER is the version number of the kernel you tested. For example:

This can be done by clicking on the yellow circle with a black pencil icon next to the word Tags located at the bottom of the bug description. As well, please remove the tag:

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the following tags:

As well, please remove the tag:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug's
Status as Confirmed. Please let us know your results. Thank you for your

n0PxN0p, please do not mark this a duplicate of another report, or vice
versa, without a fully detailed technical discussion on the commit
causing this problem.

  Via USB and ehci_hcd bug: USB not recognized - IRQ issue

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: linux-image-2.6-386

  On Ubuntu Dapper Drake, with all updates applied, USB devices are not
  recognized anymore (they used to when Dapper was freshly released).

  Problem may come from ehci_hcd, as removing this module (modprobe -r
  ehci_hcd) fix the issue, but then USB devices are stuck on 1.1 low
  speed standard.

  Another solution seem to set acpi=noirq at boot time, but didn't fix
  the problem for me (it did for some other people however).

  More googling showed me that this problem is ongoing and has appeared
  in the past as well. Some kernel issue here.

  Here is what happens when I plug a USB device in (dmesg output):

  [17185074.604000] usb 4-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 2
  [17185075.604000] ehci_hcd 0000:00:10.3: Unlink after no-IRQ?  Controller is probably using the wrong IRQ.
  [17185086.148000] usb 4-1: device not accepting address 2, error -110
  [17185086.260000] usb 4-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 3

  "Controller is probably using the wrong IRQ" <- There we go: IRQ problem. Still, set acpi=noirq at boot time doesn't fix anything.
