[RFC 05/13] USB: Allow drivers to disable hub-initiated LPM.

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

[[Resending with a smaller Cc list]

USB 3.0 Link Power Management (LPM) is designed to allow individual
links in the bus to go into lower power states.  There are two ways a
link can enter a lower power state:

1. Device-initiated LPM.  When a USB device decides it can go into a
lower power link state, it sends a message to the parent hub, telling it
to go into either U1 or U2.  Device-initiated LPM is good for devices
that send data to the host, like communications devices.

2. Hub-initiated LPM.  After the link has been idle for a specific
amount of time, the parent hub will request that the child go into a
lower power state.  The child can refuse that request.  For example, a
USB modem may want to refuse the LPM request if it is in the middle of
receiving a text message.  Hub-initiated LPM is good for devices where
only the host initiates the data transfer, like USB printers or USB mass
storage devices.

Links will be automatically placed into higher power states by the USB
hubs and roothubs whenever the host starts a USB transmission.

Introduce a new usb_driver flag, disable_hub_initiated_lpm, that allows
drivers to disable hub-initiated LPM.
