    Subject[RESEND/PATCH 2/6] USB: musb-gadget: fix bulk IN infinite hangs in double buffer case
    From: Ming Lei <>

    This patch fixes one infinite hang of bulk IN transfer in double buffer
    case, the hang can be observed easily by test #6 of usbtest if musb is
    configured as g_zero and fifo mode 3 is taken to enable double fifo.

    In fact, the patch only removes the check for non-empty fifo before
    loading data from new request into fifo since the check is not correct:

    -in double buffer case, fifo may accommodate more than one packet,
    even though it has contained one packet already and is non-empty

    -since last DMA is completed before calling musb_g_tx, it is sure
    that fifo may accommodate at least one packet

    Without applying the patch, new requst enqueued from .complte may not
    have a chance to be loaded into fifo, then will never be completed and
    cause infinite hangs.

    With the patch, on my beagle B5, test#6(queued bulk in) can be passed and
    test result may go beyond 33Mbyte/s if musb is configured as g_zero and
    fifo mode 3 is taken, follows the test command:

    #testusb -D DEV_NAME -c 1024 -t 6 -s 32768 -g 8 [1]
