Description of problem:
NoName 7-Port USB 2.0 Hub attached to USB 2.0 Port on VIA PCI Card:
Same Hub attached to Onboard USB 1.1 Port: Bootup succeeds
This behavior also occurs with kernel-2.6.8-1.526.
Output on bootup:
Initializing USB controller (uhci-hcd): [OK]
Initializing USB controller (ehci-hcd): [OK]
Mounting USB filesystem: [OK]
No devices are attached to the Hub. When the Hub is connected to the
PCI card after bootup it is detected by the kernel as expected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Attach Hub to Port on PCI Card
Actual Results: Bootup hangs
Expected Results: Bootup should continue
Booting still hangs with rawhide kernel 2.6.8-1.541.
Booting still hangs with rawhide kernel 2.6.8-1.610.
The problem has its origin in /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit, line 220:
needusbstorage=`LC_ALL=C grep -e "^I.*Cls=08" /proc/bus/usb/devices
This line hangs the machine. When commenting it out, booting continues
until "Checking for new hardware". Here it hangs again.
Booting finally works with kernel 2.6.9-1.640.
