[PATCH v4 0/3] usb: notify hcd when USB device suspend or resume

From: Lu Baolu

This patch series try to meet a design requirement in xHCI spec.

The xHCI spec is designed to allow an xHC implementation to cache the
endpoint state. Caching endpoint state allows an xHC to reduce latency
when handling ERDYs and other USB asynchronous events. However holding
this state in xHC consumes resources and power. The xHCI spec designs
some methods through which host controller driver can hint xHC about
how to optimize its operation, e.g. to determine when it holds state
internally or pushes it out to memory, when to power down logic, etc.

When a USB device is going to suspend, states of all endpoints cached
in the xHC should be pushed out to memory to save power and resources.
Vice versa, when a USB device resumes, those states should be brought
back to the cache.

It is harmless if a USB devices under USB 3.0 host controller suspends
or resumes without a notification to hcd driver. However there may be
less opportunities for power savings and there may be increased latency
for restarting an endpoint. The precise impact will be different for
each xHC implementation. It all depends on what an implementation does
with the hints.

Change log:
- remove unused 'msg' parameter in the callbacks

- move two xhci specific comments from hub to xhci
- define xhci_device_suspend(resume) as NULL when no PM_CONFIG

- make the callback name specific to the activity in question
- no need to export hcd_notify
- put the callback in the right place

Lu Baolu (3):
usb: notify hcd when USB device suspend or resume
usb: xhci: implement device_suspend/device_resume entries
usb: xhci: remove stop device and ring doorbell in hub control and bus
