SubjectRe: [Fwd: Re: [Linux-usb-users] Fwd: Re: 2.6.17-rc6-mm2 - USB issues]
Firstly, apologies for a) the massive x-post and b) the time taken to 
get back to people... Please let me know where this is most
appropriately dealt with and I'll keep it off other lists, considering
the latest information;

Andrew - please note - this is not a problem exclusive to the -mm
series, on testing various combos I found it in the stock series too.

Stock kernels break for me starting with 2.6.17-rc4 (I tested all rcs
and also .17 itself), rc3 works a treat for using USB. I suspect the
following line missing in dmesg for rc4 is the reason;

-PCI: Via IRQ fixup for 0000:00:11.1, from 255 to 11
See the following dmesg files for details;

http://www.agotnes.com/kernelStuff/dmesg-2.6.17-rc3-working
http://www.agotnes.com/kernelStuff/dmesg-2.6.17-rc4-not-working

And the diff, for convenience;

http://www.agotnes.com/kernelStuff/diff-rc3_rc4

I have a Via chipset motherboard (for my sins), further details
available on request, again, for convenience, the lspci;

http://www.agotnes.com/kernelStuff/lspci

A couple of possible suspect patches introduced in the changelog for rc4
were (with the first one looking particularly interesting, the others
less interesting as I go down the list);

[PATCH] PCI quirk: VIA IRQ fixup should only run for VIA southbridges
[PATCH] x86_64: avoid IRQ0 ioapic pin collision
[PATCH] PCI: fix via irq SATA patch
[ALSA] via82xx - Use DXS_SRC as default for VIA8235/8237/8251 chips
[ALSA] via82xx: tweak VT8251 workaround
[ALSA] via82xx: add support for VIA VT8251 (AC'97)

I'm no kernel hacker, so I'm not sure how I'd isolate this one patch and
reverse / modify it. Please let me know how I can progress testing this
as I'm currently prevented from using USB with the latest set of kernels
on my test server...

I've got all kernels in the 2.6.17-rc1 through to .17 itself there, plus
a variety of mm ones too, so patches against any of those I can very
easily test.

Please keep me cc'd as I'm not on all these lists, thanks :)
