    SubjectEHCI Regression in 2.6.23-rc2

    Please CC me, as I'm currently not subscribed to this list, thx.

    After some serious hangs with 2.6.23-rc2 I did some bisects and this was the

    196705c9bbc03540429b0f7cf9ee35c2f928a534 is first bad commit

    USB: EHCI cpufreq fix

    EHCI controllers that don't cache enough microframes can get MMF errors
    when CPU frequency changes occur between the start and completion of
    split interrupt transactions, due to delays in reading main memory
    (caused by CPU cache snoop delays).

    This patch adds a cpufreq notifier to the EHCI driver that will
    inactivate split interrupt transactions during frequency transitions.
    It was tested on Intel ICH7 and Serverworks/Broadcom HT1000 EHCI

    As expected my system only hangs when cpufreq, powernow-k8 and ehci modules
    are loaded, and some transition should occur.
    (Simulated by using userspace governour and changing freq manually)

    The corresponding EHCI Controller is:

    00:10.4 USB Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. USB 2.0 (rev 86) (prog-if 20
    Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. A7V600/K8V-X/A8V Deluxe motherboard

    I could not get my hands on any output while the hang occurs, seems like the
    CPU is really bad locked.
