[Bug 1279081] Re: linux freezes with threadirqs parameter when rt73usb is loaded


Hi there,

I can confirm that issue doesn't exist in v3.12 final. I have used both
the generic version of that kernel (from the ppa) and a recompiled
version with lowlatency params (which is right now the main kernel i am
using in 14.04)

The issue exists in the latest 3.13 kernel as well i.e.
lowlatency - this works fine with my Xstation USB audio interface when i
disable threadirqs

I am currently downloading the 3.14 rc2 debs - will test them and report

Bug description:
