Description Vitaly Mayatskikh 2008-07-21 11:23:12 UTC
usb_hcd_pci_probe (drivers/usb/core/hcd-pci.c) doesn't handle h/w initialization
errors correctly. In case of error kernel produces this message:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (Nahant Update 6)
Kernel 2.6.9-67.EL on an ppc64 login: Debug: sleeping function called from invalid
context at include/asm/semaphore.h:65

I have noticed a possibility of this bug in sources and wrote a systemtap's
script to trigger artificial error in usb_hcd_pci_probe(). Run it with stap -vvg:

 * Simulate hcd-pci initialization error with
 * "out of memory" in usb_hcd_pci_probe => hcd_buffer_create
void hcd_buffer_destroy (void *hcd);

function destroy(hcd:long)
        hcd_buffer_destroy ((void*)THIS->hcd);

probe kernel.function("hcd_buffer_create").return
        printf("%s => hcd_buffer_create, return %d\n", caller(), $return);
        if (caller() == ".usb_hcd_pci_probe" && !$return) {
                printf("simulating failure\n");
                $return = -11 /* -ENOMEM */;
