Subject[PATCH 0/10] x86: EHCI and earlyprintk= improvements (Round 2)
Greg KH requested a re-post of this patch series, so here is round 2.
The only implementation change here was in patch 7 of 10 per comments
from Alan Stern. The rest is just context changes from the typical
kernel churn.


This patch series against the 2.6.31-rc3 covers improving the
reliability of earlyprintk when using a usb debug device connected to
an EHCI debug controller.

The only patch that is not directly related to the USB earlyprintk is
the 5th in the series which changes the console registration such that
you can have more than one earlyprintk device. It is plausible to
drop this patch if folks object to the idea or implementation.

These patches were heavily test on 12 different systems with a total
of 7 different EHCI controllers on both the x86_64 and i386

The series starts by moving the EHCI debug code out of the
arch/x86/kernel/early_printk.c and over to under the
drivers/usb/early/ehci-dbgp.c. It is plausible to use this code on
other architectures beyond x86. This also allows the earlyprintk.c to
stay a bit cleaner, since it is primarily intended to handle the
"earlyprintk=" setup.

The other key changes are:
* Update the documentation to reflect the usage constraints
* The earlyprintk=keep,... works correctly with dbgp
* Make the cr nl handling for dbgp the same as the uart drivers
* Numerous errata and initialization fixes to make the usb
debug device work with a wide range of EHCI controllers
