I think I understand what's going on.


The good old USB2 suspend is called L2. Device enters it after 3ms if there is no link activity.
If a device can remote wakeup (RWE) it's stated in the descriptor. RWE can be turned on
of off using standard SET/CLEAR Fature requests

The LPM L1 USB2 state again is entered with a LPM extended transaction to avoid the
3ms wait before powersaving. L1 state is exit can be done with a simialr RWE as L2 resume.
The RWE from L1 can turned on/off using a bit in the LPM extended transaction.


Specs say that if the device supports RWE we should enable it for LPM L1 exit as well.
This is done by setting the RWE (LPM L1) bit in PORTPMSC register. This bit only affect LPM L1 remote
wake. see

The issue might be that xhci driver never check if the device actually supports RWE, we always
set the PORTPMSC RWE (for LPM L1) bit.

How about checking something like udev->do_remote_wakeup and setting and setting the bit
based on that.

The function that you are changing, xhci_set_usb2_hardware_lpm() should only be used if
host has Hardware LPM Cabaility bit (HLC) set for that USB2 port in the
USB 2.0 xHCI Supported Protocol Capability.
Host that don't supprt LPM won't have that set. See xhci
