Description Hans de Goede 2007-03-14 14:56:00 UTC
I've a logitech usb video class compatible webcam, which also has an usb-sound
compatible mic. If I plug this in before booting, the mic works (video works too
with the uvb-linux driver).

However if I plug this in later I get:
usb 5-2: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4
usb 5-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
USB device is in the shutdown state, cannot create a card instance
snd-usb-audio: probe of 5-2:1.2 failed with error -5

Comment 1 Pete Zaitcev 2007-04-20 22:19:45 UTC
The comparison with dev looks bogus to me. I have no idea what Takashi was
thinking when he wrote it. I'm going to poke him and then we'll see.

Comment 2 Pete Zaitcev 2007-05-08 01:16:08 UTC
Well, Takashi says that the code fragment I mentioned is used when several
audio devices are present in one USB interface. Odd, but not criminal, as
long as the device pointer is not used across disconnects. He asks to try

Comment 3 Hans de Goede 2007-05-14 14:36:38 UTC
Unfortunately, despite my current kernel not having the chip->dev = NULL; line I
can no longer reproduce this, I guess some other upstream change has fixed this.

So I guess this maybe closed, not sure though.

Comment 4 Pete Zaitcev 2007-05-14 15:28:51 UTC
I'm closing this so that it doesn't stick out.
But yes, I suspect this is random. The patch is not in 2.6.21-1.3126.
