Uevent disables USB-ports

Good Evening,

since kernel 2.6.39, an uevent disables my usb ports:

Edit:
Forgot to mention that I already tried following kernel parameters (acpi=routeirq, noirqdebug, pci=msi, irqpoll, irqfixup) of which only noirqdebug worked (as to say that IRQ #16 was not disables, so my keyboard did work), but which caused a decrease in graphics performance (low fps rates (shells refresh slowly), tearing).

mei: module is from the staging directory, the quality is unknown, you have been warned.

I'd try blacklisting mei, see if that helps.

Re: Uevent disables USB-ports

Did blacklist it, no change whatsoever.
However, I would like to point out, that my usb ports are disabled _before_
the modules are loaded (I'm using lvm+luks), precisely after the udev events,
right before entering the luks password.

Re: Uevent disables USB-ports

looks like a conflict between ehci_hd and mei, but to be sure there are no other devices handling irq 16, please post

$ lspci -v

What extension cards do you have in your system ?


Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

The only extension card would be my graphics card. (http://paste.xinu.at/wCwKj/#n118)

Re: Uevent disables USB-ports

ok, there are only 2 devices using IRQ 16

00:16.0 Communication controller: Intel Corporation 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family MEI Controller #1 (rev 04)

00:1a.0 USB controller: Intel Corporation 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family USB Enhanced Host Controller #2 (rev 05) (prog-if 20 [EHCI])

there are many reports about intel chipset systems having the same problem after kernel 2.6.38 / 2.6.39 .
you basically have 2 options :
1. If you want to have all usb ports available:
test with the LTS kernel 2.6.32.48, verify it doesn't have those problems (99% sure)
stick to LTS-kernel atleast until the problem is solved in the mainline kernel

2. Disable / don't use the problem ports.
your system has multiple USB controllers :

00:1a.0 USB controller: Intel Corporation 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family USB Enhanced Host Controller #2 (rev 05) (prog-if 20 [EHCI])

00:1d.0 USB controller: Intel Corporation 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family USB Enhanced Host Controller #1 (rev 05) (prog-if 20 [EHCI])

03:00.0 USB controller: NEC Corporation uPD720200 USB 3.0 Host Controller (rev 03) (prog-if 30 [XHCI])

test which / how many ports do work
If there are not enough usb ports working, your system has several pci express slots.
you could consider purchasing a pci express extension card with usb ports.
While it may use the same driver, it will get a different irq.

Re: Uevent disables USB-ports

The problem is the USB3 controller (NEC uPD720200), I've got a post in ubuntu forum that partialy resolve... use pci=nomsi in grub seems to work, but with me it disables my wifi....

another way to use without nomsi is connecting to the usb port  and do a rmmod xhci_hcd then modprobe xhci_hcd

There is a patch sent to the 3.2 kernel maybe resolves the problem...

The funny thing is, that I tried all USB-ports and it did work with my USB3.0 ports...
Keyboard and mouse receive power, as well as the normal USB2 ports after boot. Anyway, I hope that the problem will be fixed in 3.2 because someday I will surely need the USB3 ports for something other than mouse & keyboard.

I won't mark the thread as [solved] because my workaround isn't really a solution, but I will provide feedback, if the kernel 3.2 did solve the problem.
