[ 05/66] usb: Prevent dead ports when xhci is not enabled
From: Ben Hutchings
Date: Sun Feb 17 2013 - 18:11:50 EST
3.2-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.
From: David Moore <david.moore@xxxxxxxxx>
commit 58b2939b4d5a030eaec469d29812ab8477ee7e76 upstream.
When the xHCI driver is not available, actively switch the ports to EHCI
mode since some BIOSes leave them in xHCI mode where they would
otherwise appear dead. This was discovered on a Dell Optiplex 7010,
but it's possible other systems could be affected.
This should be backported to kernels as old as 3.0, that contain the
commit 69e848c2090aebba5698a1620604c7dccb448684 "Intel xhci: Support
EHCI/xHCI port switching."
