rtl8187 driver won't resume
Last modified: 2009-07-21 15:48:40 EDT
Description of problem: The rtl8187 driver results in a failure to resume after hibernate. rmmod-ing the driver cures the problem
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
2. punch power button
Nothing. Reboot required.
Restore config at time of hibernate.
Here's the stanza from lshw
description: Generic USB device
physical id: 1
bus info: usb@2:1
configuration: driver=rtl8187 maxpower=500mA speed=480.0MB/s
The problem was diagnosed using the procedure outlined in Documentation/power/basic-pm-debugging.txt. Section 1 hibernation tests all failed, requiring reboot. The freezer test succeeded. The devices test failed until the RTL8187
driver was rmmod-ed. After that, all tests succeeded.
