we experienced similar problems and, after applying your patch, everything
works fine (even hot-plug)!
Our configuration is:
- PPChameleonEVB board (405EP-based)
- Linux 2.4.20 from Denx's kernel tree
- CiUSB USB controller by Conceptronic, based on 82C861 (it is
OHCI-compatible and not UHCI as documentation claims)
We performed some tests with the following devices:
- Logitech 4-port hub
- Logitech Scroll USB mouse
- Manhattan USB keyboard
For Wolfgang: are you going to include this patch in your kernel tree?
Thanks again for your patch and best regards,
