    USB: Disable hub-initiated LPM for comms devices. · e1f12eb6
    Sarah Sharp authored
    Hub-initiated LPM is not good for USB communications devices.  Comms
    devices should be able to tell when their link can go into a lower power
    state, because they know when an incoming transmission is finished.
    Ideally, these devices would slam their links into a lower power state,
    using the device-initiated LPM, after finishing the last packet of their
    data transfer.
    
    If we enable the idle timeouts for the parent hubs to enable
    hub-initiated LPM, we will get a lot of useless LPM packets on the bus
    as the devices reject LPM transitions when they're in the middle of
    receiving data.  Worse, some devices might blindly accept the
    hub-initiated LPM and power down their radios while they're in the
    middle of receiving a transmission.
    
    The Intel Windows folks are disabling hub-initiated LPM for all USB
    communications devices under a xHCI USB 3.0 host.  In order to keep
    the Linux behavior as close as possible to Windows, we need to do the
    same in Linux.
    
    Set the disable_hub_initiated_lpm flag for for all USB communications
    drivers.  I know there aren't currently any USB 3.0 devices that
    implement these class specifications, but we should be ready if they do.
