Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Due to a bug in the libusbredirhost library, handling of timeouts for bulk transfers did not work correctly. Consequently, traffic of USB ACM serial port devices, such as PSTN modems and SmartCard readers, could not be properly redirected. With this update, no timeout is set on the usb-host side for these devices and the traffic redirection works as expected.

Description John Walicki 2012-06-22 08:22:38 EDT
Description of problem:
We have real business / use cases for PSTN modems, GPS modules and SmartCard Readers to be exposed to KVM Windows instances. These cards need to present themselves as a serial port but are not working with USBredir.

I understand there is a USBredir test package with this patch that improves this
capability.  I request that this patch be included in a future RHEL 6.3 z-stream.

Note to QA, verifying this bug requires exotic hardware, which I had on lone to reproduce / fix and no longer have, therefor I suggest verifying this sanity only. Basically check the SRPM that this commit is present:
