Re: linux-stable: backport usb related commit to 3.10 and 3.12?

resending; multiple systems are and have been working fine
for me, with that commit backported to kernel 3.10 and 3.12.


On an administered server, I noticed that there's a constant load
around 0.70 when running kernels 3.10 and 3.12, even if
the system is doing nothing, and in single user mode.
Culprit seems to be the process 'khubd'.
No such effect when running kernels 3.4 or 3.14.

I reverse bisected linux-stable and found that the following commit
fixes it for me, for both kernel 3.10 and 3.12:

[08d1dec6f4054e3613f32051d9b149d4203ce0d2] usb:hub set hub->change_bits when over-current happens

Could that commit be backported to the stable 3.10 and 3.12 series?

(Disclaimer: I'm not a programmer, but I'd be happy to help with any testing involved)
