Comment 3 Ted Logan 2007-06-02 12:31:54 UTC
It worked with 2.6.20 from fedora 6.

Is there any way to "patch" this for now, so I can get it working
again?  I need ftdi-sio for my usb-uirt as I am about to go out of
town for quite some time and can't use myth without it.  I mean, is
there some hack I can use?

Dunno.  You could perhaps try removing the .port_probe and .port_remove
fields from ftdi_sio_device (line 649) but that's just a random poke.

I suspect you'll need to stick with 2.6.20 for now.

I'm suspecting it was Jim's 12bdbe03c8db7139de1de5c622cb0609d259cece which
caused this regression..

Comment 5 Ted Logan 2007-06-02 12:44:17 UTC
I'll try removing those.  I don't really have option of downgrading
kernel as some other f7 stuff is dependent on 2.6.21.

So I can just comment out that line altogether?

Comment 6 Ted Logan 2007-06-02 14:40:46 UTC
Did you mean 639?

   .port_probe =           ftdi_sio_port_probe,
        .port_remove =          ftdi_sio_port_remove,

Here is what I did

/*      .port_probe =           ftdi_sio_port_probe,
        .port_remove =          ftdi_sio_port_remove,*/

It bombs in priv->flags, as usb_get_serial_port_data() is used in a quirk
handler for the whole device before the ports are registered with the driver
core which would call ftdi_sio_port_probe() which calls
usb_set_serial_port_data()

Oliver, can you tell me what I might do to get it working again for
now?  I can't use usb-uirt without it.

Does this patch fix the issue?

Comment 12 Ted Logan 2007-06-04 13:01:31 UTC
Sorry, I can't really try it.  I have fedora's 2.6.21 kernel and I
have to leave the machine working for 2 months, so I can't
experiment:)

However, I did try 2.6.21.3 and it had same problem.

Can you please post the oops with that version?

Sorry, I will not have access to that machine for months.  That's why
I had to get it working before I left.

So you cannot and havn't tested patches?
But you can confirm that2.6.21.3 has the same bug you encountered
with an older kernel? You don't happen to have a spare device around?

Comment 16 Terry Froy 2007-06-06 04:44:54 UTC
I have just been bitten by this bug and I believe that I have the exact same
device as John H.

(my device is a USB-UIRT2 and was purchased from
http://www.usbuirt.com/overview.htm - can't verify the relevant device IDs right
now as I upgraded all my boxen to Fedora 7 and then discovered that this didn't
work)

My kernel oops is 99% identical to that of John H's.

I am in the process of building a new kernel RPM using the patch which Oliver
kindly supplied and I'll be posting back here to report either success or
failure with my own USB-UIRT2.

I'm not subscribed to LKML so please either feel free to converse directly with
me via e-mail or via this Bugzilla entry.

Regards,
Terry
Comment 17 Ted Logan 2007-06-06 10:53:14 UTC
Before i left, I tested 2.21.3, which had a similar error, perhaps the
same, with BUG
and 2.20.12, which worked.

Hi

I had a same problem on FC7 for using with my Tira-2.
So, I applied Oliver's patch.
This patch fix the issue!
(my rpm is based on 2.6.21.4 but I think you can use this patch for any 2.6.21.x)

many thanks.

Shiro H.

Comment 19 Pádraig Brady 2007-07-11 09:27:32 UTC
I notice that this is still not in Linus' tree,
(and 2.6.22 has been released already).
I have a Tira-2 which crashed with F7.
I will test the above patch, and reply if it doesn't work.

Is there at least some patch that enables me to use the device again for now?
Comment 22 Ted Logan 2007-08-16 00:32:02 UTC
This is from bill ryder, the original devel...

----
Actually I just downloaded the 2.6.22.2 kernel and had a look at that driver.

I'm pretty certain now you have a device I don't have and hence can't check out a fix for at all.

However - you can probably patch it yourself

First you want to

dmesg  | grep Detected

after you have plugged in whatever it is you are using (or after booting your system).

For my device I get:

drivers/usb/serial/ftdi_sio.c: Detected FT8U232AM

The chip type is FT8U232AM for me. That is supported.

I'm guessing you are a FT232RL

Maybe it will work just by adding

case FT232RL:

to the ftdi_tiocmget function  (under case FT2232C:)

If that doesn't work then you really are in trouble because the chip isn't talking in the same way as the other ones and FTDI may not have released the spec.

If all of that works you can just request that change to the linux usb developers mailing list since it's a safe one line change.

As I say I don't maintain the driver at all any more and don't have time to work on it (and only have very old devices for testing anyway).

Good luck!
Comment 23 Ted Logan 2007-08-16 21:30:48 UTC
So I again did what I specified in the bug report

Used the ftdi_sio.h and ftdi_sio.c from 
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-2.6.20.y.git;a=tree;f=drivers/usb/serial;h=535edb4ac2d4c6b03bd3ca641c44aae8013b4dd9;hb=fcfbb42bd476ed54b598d917d3b9b63d8835093e



With kernel
 uname -a
Linux home 2.6.22.1-41.fc7 #1 SMP Fri Jul 27 18:10:34 EDT 2007 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

And it works with 2.6.22.1-41.  Apparently sometime after that kernel the driver has been broken for usb-uirt, pretty much ever since.
