3.13.11-ckt22 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Mathias Nyman <mathias.nyman@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 18cc2f4cbbaf825a4fedcf2d60fd388d291e0a38 upstream.

Our event ring consists of only one segment, and we risk filling
the event ring in case we get isoc transfers with short intervals
such as webcams that fill a TD every microframe (125us)

With 64 TRB segment size one usb camera could fill the event ring in 8ms.
A setup with several cameras and other devices can fill up the
event ring as it is shared between all devices.
This has occurred when uvcvideo queues 5 * 32TD URBs which then
get cancelled when the video mode changes. The cancelled URBs are returned
in the xhci interrupt context and blocks the interrupt handler from
handling the new events.

A full event ring will block xhci from scheduling traffic and affect all
devices conneted to the xhci, will see errors such as Missed Service
Intervals for isoc devices, and and Split transaction errors for LS/FS
interrupt devices.

Increasing the TRB_PER_SEGMENT will also increase the default endpoint ring
size, which is welcome as for most isoc transfer we had to dynamically
expand the endpoint ring anyway to be able to queue the 5 * 32TDs uvcvideo

The default size used to be 64 TRBs per segment
