commit c1db30a2a79eb59997b13b8cabf2a50bea9f04e1 upstream.

Some OHCI controllers from ATI/AMD seem to have difficulty with
"global" USB suspend, that is, suspending an entire USB bus without
setting the suspend feature for each port connected to a device.  When
we try to resume the child devices, the controller gives timeout
errors on the unsuspended ports, requiring resets, and can even cause
ohci-hcd to hang; see


and the following messages.

This patch fixes the problem by adding a new quirk flag to ohci-hcd.
The flag causes the ohci_rh_suspend() routine to suspend each
unsuspended, enabled port before suspending the root hub.  This
effectively converts the "global" suspend to an ordinary root-hub
suspend.  There is no need to unsuspend these ports when the root hub
is resumed, because the child devices will be resumed anyway in the
course of a normal system resume ("global" suspend is never used for
runtime PM).

This patch should be applied to all stable kernels which include
commit 0aa2832dd0d9 (USB: use "global suspend" for system sleep on
USB-2 buses) or a backported version thereof.
