Hello Zoran!

Yes, I'm working with the same board, but the problem is different. Last time I was solving a problem of OS suspend-resume sequence with modern kernels and now it is about working with old kernels

Hello Kostja,
We already had this discussion a while ago, didn't we?


(BTW, ATOM BYT has exactly the same problem)

I try to port coreboot on boards with Haswell CPU and Lynxpoint LP chipset (IBASE IB908AF-4650 board, DFI HU968) and I've encountered a strange problem. USB devices stop working shortly after OS boot (or after USB device replug in OS) with flooding system with messages:

hub 1-1:1.0: cannot reset port 5 (err = -110) hub 1-1:1.0: cannot reset port 5 (err = -110) hub 1-1:1.0: Cannot enable port 5.  Maybe the USB cable is bad?

Through some digging I've found out that this problem persist on kernels <3.5. I've investigated this problem more closely and come down to the fact that the kernel commit that solves this problem is:

3d9545c EHCI: maintain the ehci->command value properly


And now I'm kinda stuck. The effect of this commit doesn't seem to interface with bios for me. So how does original IBASE/DFI bios can overcome code error before this commit?

What can be the source of my problem? What should I investigate more precise based on result that I've got?
