Bug Description

SRU Justification:

    Impact: usb hud is dead on omap3 boards (beagles)
    Fix: see the attached patches.
    Testcase: boot the board with an unpatched kernel and see there's no nic, mouse, keyb, etcetc; try again with a patched kernel and check again nic, mouse, keyb, etcetc


This bug is actually a twofold problem:

1) config for our omap kernel had a problem

enabling USB_[EHCI|OHCI]_HCD_PLATFORM we actually overwrote the OMAP EHCI/OHCI bits:

/home/ppisati/ubuntu-quantal/drivers/usb/host/ehci-hcd.c:1394:0: warning: "PLATFORM_DRIVER" redefined [enabled by default]
/home/ppisati/ubuntu-quantal/drivers/usb/host/ehci-hcd.c:1289:0: note: this is the location of the previous definition


#include "ehci-omap.c"
#define PLATFORM_DRIVER ehci_hcd_omap_driver

#include "ehci-platform.c"
#define PLATFORM_DRIVER ehci_platform_driver

and later in ehci_init():

    retval = platform_driver_register(&PLATFORM_DRIVER);
    if (retval < 0)
        goto clean0;

2) upstream broke ehci implementation since 3.5 (and it's still broken ATM)

Since the 3.5 tree, usb ehci for omap3 has been plagued with problems up to the point that it was disabled upstream:

    ARM: OMAP2+: omap2plus_defconfig: EHCI driver is not stable, disable it

    The EHCI driver is not stable enough to be enabled by default. In v3.5,
    it has at least the following problems:

    - warning dump during bootup
    - hang during suspend
    - prevents CORE powerdomain from entering retention during idle (even
      when no USB devices connected.)

    This demonstrates that this driver has not been thoroughly tested and
    therfore should not be enabled in the default defconfig.

    In addition, the problems above cause new PM regressions which need be
    addressed before this driver should be enabled in the default

and lately this situation has spiraled down to the point where enabling it at boot triggers an oops and a subsequent dead usb hub:

ATM there's no activity upstream to resolve this bug in a sound way but a patch was posted to linux-omap that resolves it:

http://<email address hidden>/msg73115.html

While it's not upstream, the patch touches only omap3 clock code so it's safe for all the other flavours and it's the only
option we have right now.

The aforementioned patch coupled with disabling the generic ehci/ohci driver implementation fix the usb bus on omap3.
