usb-ohci driver insufficient for Serverworks(tm) boards...
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of Problem:
The usb-ohci driver fails badly on Serverworks(tm) boards
(in my case an ASUS CURDLS).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It happens (or I observed this) since kernel 7.2)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get a Serverworks(tm) board and check
2. load the driver (or let the system do)
3. driver should be fixed quickly
* The driver works, if the system is booted from the Inst CD
- The driver loads and gets assigned to IRQ 15 (shared with the 2
on-board SCSI adapter)
- a conncected ELSA USB modem gets power from the USB bus
* The driver fails (as explained above)
- Serverworks(tm) boards provide far more than
15 IRQs... thus the driver fails, since it doesn't
handle this obviously
A working usb-ohci driver on real server boards with
IRQs beyond 15 ...
I can provide time and a box to check. The failing server is part of my
laboratory (see: http://hphcluster.dyndns.org)
If you want/need access to that box, contact me under the reporters
email address: email@example.com
(ComServe -- IT Services, http://ComServe-EDV.de)
can you check in the asus bios to see if there's a "mps1.4" or "mps1.1" setting?
If so, please try the other value for that setting....
This is most likely a APIC or APIC routing table bug, which seems to
be quite common with Serverworks P3 boards:
The APIC entry is not in line with the HW interrupt used.
One possible cure is to hardcore the usb interrupt in the APIC IRQ
transform or in the USB driver.
This is of course not limited to RH 7.3 but a kernel issue.
On the Serverworks P3 (Serverworks HE chipset on mine) boards in
question, the same problem arises with all 2.4 and 2.6 kernels.
