Description Christophe Lambin 2005-10-16 14:30:52 EDT
I've been running kernel 2.6.13-1.1526_FC4smp since one week now. Today I'm
getting a flood of USB-related messages on /var/log/messages. This started
happening after booting the system today.

The message are:

Oct 16 10:48:19 localhost kernel: usb 1-4: new high speed USB device using
ehci_hcd and address 7
Oct 16 10:48:19 localhost kernel: usb 1-4: device descriptor read/64, error -71
Oct 16 10:48:19 localhost kernel: usb 1-4: device descriptor read/64, error -71

The error started approx. 1.5 hours after boot and is being reported
continuously, with the address looping between 2 and 127.  

The errors are related to a 'new high speed USB device', but no new USB devices
have been added recently. I have my USB mouse and USB keyboard connected, but
that's always been the case and didn't seem to be an issue for the last week of
running 2.6.13-1.1526_FC4smp.
Comment 1 Christophe Lambin 2005-10-16 14:41:36 EDT
More info:  the device in question is the USB hub on my Dell 1704 monitor.  If I
remove the USB cable between the monitor and my compuyer, the errors stop.
Comment 2 Pete Zaitcev 2005-10-17 19:37:50 EDT
Sounds like a hardware problem. Perhaps the hub loses power when the
monitor goes blank or something like that.

2.6.14-1.1637_FC4 has been released as an update for FC4.
Please retest with this update, as a large amount of code has been changed in
this release, which may have fixed your problem.

Thank you.
Comment 4 Christophe Lambin 2005-11-19 03:39:31 EST
Still the case in 2.6.14-1.1637_FC4.
Comment 5 Pete Zaitcev 2005-12-20 02:35:47 EST
I am quite sure that the device is in fact toasted.

This is a mass-update to all currently open kernel bugs.

A new kernel update has been released (Version: 2.6.15-1.1830_FC4)
based upon a new upstream kernel release.

Please retest against this new kernel, as a large number of patches
go into each upstream release, possibly including changes that
may address this problem.

This bug has been placed in NEEDINFO_REPORTER state.
