SubjectRe: VIA KT400 + Kernel 2.6.12 + IO-APIC + uhci_hcd = IRQ trouble

I performed the tests you described, and here are the results I got.

First an exact description of my USB hardware.

My Gigabyte GA7-VAXP motherboard has 6 USB connectors.

- 2 integrated within the MB connectors plate (close to the PS/2 kbd/mouse
connectors). Those have no cables and aren't prone to cable problems...

- 2 on a supplementary plate on the back. The plate and cables were provided
with the MB.

- 2 on the front of my (good quality) Antec case, connectors and cables
provided with the Antec case.

- The connectors on the supplementary plate and those on the case are
connected to corresponding connectors on the motherboard.

All these connectors used to work perfectly in kernel 2.4, and I choose them
only for ergonomic/position reasons, usually:

1/ The mouse (low-speed) connected to one of the MB integrated connectors

2/ The scanner (full-speed) connected to the supplementary plate on the back

3/ Removable devices (Camera, Flashdisks, full-speed or high-speed) usually
connected to the case front-panel connectors.


Regarding USB, the output of "lspci -vv" says :

I've booted without any USB devices and did the following:

1/ rmmod ehci-hcd

2/ Plugged the mouse in each and every USB connector I have, in turn. The
mouse was working good on each of them. IRQ 21 showed nicely incrementing
each time I plugged / unplugged or moved the plugged mouse. System was happy
and didn't log anything abnormal.

3/ Unplugged the mouse

4/ modprobe ehci-hcd

5/ Plugged the mouse. Immediately got "IRQ21: Nobody cared" and "Disabling IRQ
21" messages.
=> Noticed IRQ21 count has suddenly been set to exactly 200000
After this, the mouse was now behaving slowly and erratically (USB polled
without interrupts ?)
6/ Unplugged the mouse, then:
- rmmod ehci-hcd
- rmmod uhci-hcd
- modprobe ehci-hcd

7/ Plugged the mouse back. It was working happily again.

8/ Keeping the mouse plugged:
- modprobe ehci-hcd
=> Immediately got the IRQ21 insults again.
=> Noticed IRQ21 count has suddenly been set to exactly 400000
Mouse behaviour was slow and erratical again.
Repeated steps 6-8 using another USB socket, with the exact same results.

What do you think about this ?

Thanks again for your help.

Cheers.
