3.15-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.
From: Abbas Raza <Abbas_Raza@xxxxxxxxxx>
commit 953c66469735aed8d2ada639a72b150f01dae605 upstream.
There are 2 methods for ZLP (zero-length packet) generation:
1) In software
2) Automatic generation by device controller
1) is implemented in UDC driver and it attaches ZLP to IN packet if
descriptor->size < wLength
2) can be enabled/disabled by setting ZLT bit in the QH
When gadget ffs is connected to ubuntu host, the host sends
get descriptor request and wLength in setup packet is 255 while the
size of descriptor which will be sent by gadget in IN packet is
64 byte. So the composite driver sets req->zero = 1.
In UDC driver following code will be executed then
if (hwreq->req.zero && hwreq->req.length
&& (hwreq->req.length % hwep->ep.maxpacket == 0))
add_td_to_list(hwep, hwreq, 0);
So in case of ubuntu host, UDC driver will attach a ZLP to the IN packet.
ubuntu host will request 255 byte in IN request, gadget will send 64 byte
with ZLP and host will come to know that there is no more data.
But hold on, by default ZLT=0 for endpoint 0 so hardware also tries to
automatically generate the ZLP which blocks enumeration for ~6 seconds due
to endpoint 0 STALL, NAKs are sent to host for any requests (OUT/PING)
In case when gadget ffs is connected to Apple device, Apple device sends
setup packet with wLength=64. So descriptor->size = 64 and wLength=64
therefore req->zero = 0 and UDC driver will not attach any ZLP to the
IN packet. Apple device requests 64 bytes, gets 64 bytes and doesn't
further request for IN data. But ZLT=0 by default for endpoint 0 so
hardware tries to automatically generate the ZLP which blocks enumeration
for ~6 seconds due to endpoint 0 STALL, NAKs are sent to host for any
According to USB2.0 specs:
126.96.36.199 Variable-length Data Stage
A control pipe may have a variable-length data phase in which the
host requests more data than is contained in the specified data
structure. When all of the data structure is returned to the host,
the function should indicate that the Data stage is ended by
returning a packet that is shorter than the MaxPacketSize for the
pipe. If the data structure is an exact multiple of wMaxPacketSize
for the pipe, the function will return a zero-length packet to indicate
the end of the Data stage.
In Case-A mentioned above:
If we disable software ZLP generation & ZLT=0 for endpoint 0 OR if software
ZLP generation is not disabled but we set ZLT=1 for endpoint 0 then
enumeration doesn't block for 6 seconds.
In Case-B mentioned above:
If we disable software ZLP generation & ZLT=0 for endpoint then enumeration
still blocks due to ZLP automatically generated by hardware and host not needing
it. But if we keep software ZLP generation enabled but we set ZLT=1 for
endpoint 0 then enumeration doesn't block for 6 seconds.
So the proper solution for this issue seems to disable automatic ZLP generation
by hardware (i.e by setting ZLT=1 for endpoint 0) and let software (UDC driver)
handle the ZLP generation based on req->zero field.
