Hi, Stefani.

Did you try with both patches applied? How do you evoke the forced
kexec? Is that a kexec on panic? Does it really need to be forced? With
no clean shutdown, platform and drivers would need to issue resets, like
you mentioned below, to get the system into a clean state.

And the clean shutdown requires both of my patches, for TI chips, as far
as I know. It looks like the problem is issuing a halt when there are
pending URBs.

The problem is not that a reset hasn't been issued. A PCI function reset
should fix most of the problems with a bad device state, when the reset
works. However, the problem is that it was not cleanly shut down. URBs
should have been canceled and removed from the controller queue, and it
should have halted after that.

One way to look at that is making the PCI code issue resets to all buses
before doing any other access. That will make booting more slow, and
there are a lot of other corner cases where this might not be enough.
It's probably more sane to try to get the 3.10.23 kernel to do a clean
shutdown, if possible.
