I don't know why the request didn't time out, but this behavior should
at least be reproducible. Your stack trace implies that the firmware
will need to be transferred every time the device resumes... but of
course this leaves open the question of why your desktop crashed only

Probably the firmware wasn't transferred immediately because the kernel
relies on a userspace process to find and load the firmware, but at
that point userspace was still frozen.

Rafael, this does seem to be a general problem. Suppose a new device
gets connected while the system is suspended. How is the driver's
probe method supposed to cope if it gets called while userspace is
still frozen but it needs to load some firmware?

Is the answer that probing should always be delayed until after tasks
are thawed? There must be lots of subsystems which would have trouble
doing that, although we ought to be able to implement delayed probing
from within the driver core easily enough.
