Description Jeffrey Vandenbroucke 2006-03-28 13:53:41 UTC
Most recent kernel where this bug did not occur: N/A

Distribution: Debian 3.1

Hardware Environment: x86

Software Environment: GNU/Linux

Problem Description: When using a Silvercrest USB-keyboard (type 12015),
hid-core returns a "input irq status -32 received"-message.
This happens with and possibly later kernel versions too on x86.
The problem is that the keyboard needs to make use of HID_QUIRK_NOGET.

Steps to reproduce: Plug in the keyboard, watch the kernel-log get flooded.

Workaround: Following lines need to be added to drivers/usb/input/hid-core.c
(lines 1452 to 1453)
#define USB_VENDOR_ID_SILVERCREST       0x062a
(line 1570)
Comment 1 Gabriel A. Devenyi 2006-04-26 11:42:25 UTC
I guess I'm having a similar problem with a different keyboard,

drivers/usb/input/hid-core.c: input irq status -71 received

lsusb reports the keyboard as:
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 03f9:0100 KeyTronic Corp.

Would the same fix apply to this?
Comment 2 Gabriel A. Devenyi 2006-04-27 10:45:55 UTC
This is on 2.6.16-ck6 by-the-way.
Comment 3 Greg Kroah-Hartman 2006-05-08 14:58:37 UTC
Can you make up a patch, as per Documentation/SubmittingPatches and send
it to the linux-usb-devel mailing list and to me?  That way we can include
this fix in the kernel tree for others.
Comment 4 Jeffrey Vandenbroucke 2006-05-08 16:19:15 UTC
A patch for the Silvercrest keyboard has already been submitted; 
I need more info on the other keyboard though e.g.: does it still work when you
get flooded with those messages? The -71 message can be generated by numerous
types of problems, even faulty hardware could generate this.
Comment 5 Adrian Bunk 2006-08-22 15:05:45 UTC
Gabriel, can you answer Jeffreys question?
Comment 6 Gabriel A. Devenyi 2006-08-22 17:31:26 UTC
Ugh, this was a while ago, the issue has resolved itself, i.e., I don't have 
these messages spamming dmesg anymore, but from what I recall, the Keyboard 
was still working with the errors.
Comment 7 Adrian Bunk 2006-08-22 17:43:58 UTC
Sorry, closed too early.  :-(

This happens when a bug contains two different problems...

Jeffrey, what is the status of your patch?
Comment 8 Jeffrey Vandenbroucke 2006-08-23 05:41:18 UTC
Well, the patch for the silvercrest keyboard is OK and is already in the kernel
tree. Seeing that Gabriel doesn't have the problem anymore, I think this matter
is resolved for this type of keyboard.
