Does this patch now break things? hcd->localmem_pool at this point in
time is NULL, so this call will fail. There's no chance for any host
controller driver to actually set up this pool in this patch, so is
bisection broken?

I think you fix this up in later patches, right?

And if so, why do we even need HCD_LOCAL_MEM anymore? Can't we just
test for the presence of hcd->localmem_pool in order to determine which
allocation method to use?

thanks,

greg k-h
