I was CC'd by Sarah on this email to stable - Greg's response was:


.39 is no longer being maintained, sorry.

I've queued these other two up now, for 3.0 and 3.1-stable trees, thanks
for letting me know.

So, we should get these normally for 3.[01] but should consider whether
to backport them to 2.6.38 for Natty.

It turns out that a couple of patches that were recently queued to
Linus' tree also need to be applied to stable.  They weren't marked as
such in the description, unfortunately.

These two patches fix an issue on the Intel Panther Point xHCI host
controller that makes the host controller pretty unusable.  After a
USB 2.0 hub resume and a subsequent hub suspend, the suspended port will
no longer report device connects, disconnects or wakeups.  Basically the
ports will seem "dead" to the user.

The commit IDs in Linus' tree are
d2f52c9e585bbb1a3c164e02b8dcd0d996c67353 and

These patches should be queued for stable kernels as old as 2.6.39.
They are needed in older kernels, but the second patch would have to be
modified because hcd->speed was not introduced until 2.6.39.  The
attached patches apply to the 3.1 kernel.

The following changes since commit c3b92c8787367a8bb53d57d9789b558f1295cc96:

  Linux 3.1 (2011-10-24 09:10:05 +0200)

are available in the git repository at:
  gitolite at ra.kernel.org:/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/sarah/xhci.git stable-3.1
