[PATCH 3.13 039/259] usb: musb: Fix panic upon musb_am335x module removal

From: Kamal Mostafa
Date: Fri Aug 08 2014 - 17:34:56 EST -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Ezequiel Garcia <ezequiel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 7adb5c876e9c0677078a1e1094c6eafd29c30b74 upstream.

At probe time, the musb_am335x driver register its childs by
calling of_platform_populate(), which registers all childs in
the devicetree hierarchy recursively.

On the other side, the driver's remove() function uses of_device_unregister()
to remove each child of musb_am335x's.

However, when musb_dsps is loaded, its devices are attached to the musb_am335x
device as musb_am335x childs. Hence, musb_am335x remove() will attempt to
unregister the devices registered by musb_dsps, which produces a kernel panic.

In other words, the childs in the "struct device" hierarchy are not the same
as the childs in the "devicetree" hierarchy.

Ideally, we should enforce the removal of the devices registered by
musb_am335x *only*, instead of all its child devices. However, because of the
recursive nature of of_platform_populate, this doesn't seem possible.

Therefore, as the only solution at hand, this commit disables musb_am335x
driver removal capability, preventing it from being ever removed. This was
originally suggested by Sebastian Siewior:


And for reference, here's the panic upon module removal:

musb-hdrc musb-hdrc.0.auto: remove, state 4
usb usb1: USB disconnect, device number 1
musb-hdrc musb-hdrc.0.auto: USB bus 1 deregistered
