SubjectWeird behaviour of the 2.3.33 kernel regarding to UHCI USB
Hello,


I have noticed some weird behaviour which indicates a memory allocation
problem. I have a pc with an intel motherboard (thus the UHCI usb
controlling stuff) and connected to it a HP usb scanner model 6250C (which
is a 6200C with a page feeder). When I add support for USB, UHCI usb, and
HP USB scanner in the latest 2.3.33 kernel I get the following error
message if I run dmesg:

>USB new device connect, assigned device number 1
>Set toggle from c1464140 rval 0* for status=380007ff to 0, exp=8, act=0
>Set toggle from c1464140 rval 0* for status=380007ff to 0, exp=8, act=0
>requested 18 bytes, got 0
>usb: selecting invalid configuration 0
>usbcore: failed to set default configuration

Now if I add 2 printk statements in drivers/usb/usb.c in the
usb_set_configuration function like this:

>int usb_set_configuration(struct usb_device *dev, int configuration)
>{
> int i, ret;
> struct usb_config_descriptor *cp = NULL;
>
> printk(KERN_INFO "usb: GERRIT checking for configuration %d\n",
> configur
>ation);
> printk(KERN_INFO "usb: GERRIT Max nr configurations %d\n",
> dev->descriptor.bNumConfigurations);
> for (i=0; i<dev->descriptor.bNumConfigurations; i++) {
> if (dev->config[i].bConfigurationValue == configuration) {
> cp = &dev->config[i];
> break;
> }
> }

Then I suddenly get this output:

>USB new device connect, assigned device number 1
>Set toggle from c1464200 rval 15* for status=38000006 to 1, exp=8, act=7
>Set toggle from c1464200 rval 15* for status=38000006 to 1, exp=8, act=7
>requested 39 bytes, got 15
>usb: unexpected descriptor 0x7
>usb: unexpected descriptor 0x7
>usb: descriptor data left
>usb: GERRIT checking for configuration 16
>usb: GERRIT Max nr configurations 1

It seems that the configuration parameter suddenly changed from 0 to 16.
And futhermore I get these messages later on:

>Failed control msg - r:06 rt:80 v:0301 i:0409 s:0020 - ret: -203

Seems to me that there is somewhere a memory allocation problem or a
dangled pointer reference.

People who are involved in the development of this stuff may always contact
me to run some additional tests.

Gerrit.
