[ 25/59] xhci: Dont write zeroed pointers to xHC registers.

From: Greg KH
Date: Thu Apr 19 2012 - 17:43:07 EST

3.0-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Sarah Sharp <sarah.a.sharp@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 159e1fcc9a60fc7daba23ee8fcdb99799de3fe84 upstream.

When xhci_mem_cleanup() is called, we can't be sure if the xHC is
actually halted. We can ask the xHC to halt by writing to the RUN bit
in the command register, but that might timeout due to a HW hang.

If the host controller is still running, we should not write zeroed
values to the event ring dequeue pointers or base tables, the DCBAA
pointers, or the command ring pointers. Eric Fu reports his VIA VL800
host accesses the event ring pointers after a failed register restore on
resume from suspend. The hypothesis is that the host never actually
halted before the register write to change the event ring pointer to

Remove all writes of zeroed values to pointer registers in
xhci_mem_cleanup(). Instead, make all callers of the function reset the
host controller first, which will reset those registers to zero.
xhci_mem_init() is the only caller that doesn't first halt and reset the
host controller before calling xhci_mem_cleanup().

This should be backported to kernels as old as 2.6.32.
