Description Ben Levenson 2008-06-27 13:28:07 EDT
Description of problem:
The following appears in /var/log/messages when connecting and disconnecting a
wacom tablet:

Jun 27 12:17:14  kernel: usb 3-1: new low speed USB device using address 5
Jun 27 12:17:14  kernel: usbhid: probe of 3-1:1.0 failed with error -5
Jun 27 12:17:15  kernel: input: Wacom Graphire4 4x5 on usb-0000:00:1d.2-1

Everything is working as expected, but the error message is a little disturbing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.9-75.EL

How reproducible:
100%

Comment 1 Aristeu Rozanski 2008-09-03 16:43:47 EDT
The problem is at:
static struct hid_device *usb_hid_configure(struct usb_interface *intf)
{       
        struct usb_host_interface *interface = intf->cur_altsetting;
        struct usb_device *dev = interface_to_usbdev (intf);
        struct hid_descriptor *hdesc;
        struct hid_device *hid;
        unsigned quirks = 0, rsize = 0;
        char *buf, *rdesc;
        int n;
        
        /* Ignore all Wacom devices */
        if (dev->descriptor.idVendor == USB_VENDOR_ID_WACOM)
                return NULL;
static int hid_probe (struct usb_interface *intf, const struct usb_device_id *id)
{       
        struct hid_device *hid;
        char path[64];
        int i;
        char *c;
        
        dbg("HID probe called for ifnum %d",
                        intf->altsetting->desc.bInterfaceNumber);

        if (!(hid = usb_hid_configure(intf)))
                return -EIO;

hid_probe() shouldn't return -EIO in this case, -ENODEV would be more
appropriate and it'd prevent for the message to be printed.

It's fixed on 479f6ea85e513551510ad52f37e69e1c596ad356

RHEL-4 patch will follow
