Subject[PATCH 3.18 33/36] usb: uas: unconditionally bring back host after reset
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Oliver Neukum <>

commit cbeef22fd611c4f47c494b821b2b105b8af970bb upstream.

Quoting Hans:

If we return 1 from our post_reset handler, then our disconnect handler
will be called immediately afterwards. Since pre_reset blocks all scsi
requests our disconnect handler will then hang in the scsi_remove_host

This is esp. bad because our disconnect handler hanging for ever also
stops the USB subsys from enumerating any new USB devices, causes commands
like lsusb to hang, etc.

In practice this happens when unplugging some uas devices because the hub
code may see the device as needing a warm-reset and calls usb_reset_device
before seeing the disconnect. In this case uas_configure_endpoints fails
with -ENODEV. We do not want to print an error for this, so this commit
also silences the shost_printk for -ENODEV.


However, if we do that we better drop any unconditional execution
and report to the SCSI subsystem that we have undergone a reset
but we are not operational now.
