Description Alex Williamson 2004-07-30 12:22:06 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7)
Gecko/20040719 Firefox/0.9.1

Description of problem:
HP rx2620/rx2600 systems see these kind of messages on bootup:

usb.c: USB device 2 (vend/prod 0x47b/0x2) is not claimed by any active
PCI: Found IRQ 51 for device 00:01.2
ehci-hcd 00:01.2: NEC Corporation USB 2.0
ehci-hcd 00:01.2: irq 51, pci mem c000000080000000
usb.c: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 3
ehci-hcd 00:01.2: USB 2.0 enabled, EHCI 0.95, driver 2003-Jan-22
hub.c: USB hub found
hub.c: 5 ports detected
usb.c: error getting string descriptor 0 (error=-110)
usb.c: error getting string descriptor 0 (error=-110)
usb.c: error getting string descriptor 0 (error=-110)
usb.c: error getting string descriptor 0 (error=-110)

USB still works, but the messages are annoying

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot rx2600 w/ USB mouse & keyboard

Actual Results:  benign (I assume) error messages

Expected Results:  no errors

Additional info:  Problem actually seen on RHEL3U1

Surely this is related to a particular keyboard?

I had quite a bit of trouble with HP keyboard in the past.
A Compaq keyboard, IIRC, was the one which caused QUIRK_NOGET
to be added in the first place.

I'm going to close this. Please file a bug against a current release if this
is still a problem. It's possible that the RHEL 4 prints those messages too,
although it's hard to be sure without trying.

As a side note, I was wrong to associage fetching of string descriptors with
the NOGET quirk, which governs fetching of HID reports.
