Description of problem:
I'm seeing lots of these messages in /var/log/messages:
Jul 28 19:28:57 riker kernel: drivers/hid/usbhid/hid-core.c: control queue full

I notice these messages at least since kernel- and they are still
in kernel-

Hello Bernd,

I'm reviewing this bug as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to
isolate current bugs in the fedora kernel.


I am CC'ing myself to this bug and will try and assist you in resolving it if I can.

There hasn't been much activity on this bug for a while. Could you tell me if
you are still having problems with the latest kernel?

If the problem no longer exists then please close this bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no additional information lodged.

Sorry for the late response, but I've been on vacation for a while. 

kernel- still shows this messages. The system that I checked is
FC7 fully updated. Also, the messages are not there every day, i.e. yesterday I
had lots of them in /var/log/messages, but today I haven't found a single one yet.
Comment 3 Pete Zaitcev 2007-10-02 16:59:45 EDT
I haven't looked at this yet, sorry. At first glance, a few explanations
are possible:
 - An application is bombing HID through /dev/kbd or other means
 - Broken device which stalls control messages
 - A loop in kernel where up-stack events trigger controls (a kernel bug)
 - A race which causes the queue to get corrupt (a kernel bug)

HID almost has no diagnostics at all, I really do not know what to do
short of trying specially instrumented kernels.

What is connected to the system? Please attach /proc/bus/usb/devices.

Could I trouble you for an update? Are you still having this issue?
Comment 6 Bernd Bartmann 2008-01-10 13:56:51 EST
Seems to be fixed in the meantime. The system is now on F8 fully updated and I
don't see such messages anymore.

Good to hear Bernd. I'll close to reflect that but please re-open if the issue
returns. Thanks for filing the bug.
