"reset high-speed USB device number 2 using ehci-pci" in dmesg

Post by Flemur » Fri Mar 02, 2018 1:20 pm

Lately I've been getting these messages repeating in dmesg:

Code: Select all

[ 1537.183112] usb 1-6: reset high-speed USB device number 2 using ehci-pci
[ 2002.093236] usb 1-6: reset high-speed USB device number 2 using ehci-pci

[ 5201.175644] usb 1-6: reset high-speed USB device number 2 using ehci-pci
...
It happens with kernels 4.10, 4.13 and 4.14.
But it doesn't happen all the time. The first one here happened after 1537 seconds (25 minutes) up time.
The only USB device I'm using is a WiFi dongle, which continues to work properly (tho I sometimes connect a USB disk, which also works property). And I've used the WiFi and USB disk for months before getting these messages, which are fairly recent.
Most internet references I've found to these messages show it occurring in kernel 3.X and fixed with a kernel upgrade.
The hardware is rather old (~8 years), but the voltages (via BIOS readout) are definitely within normal range.

I suppose it could be a regression connected to this "Won't fix" bug from years ago.

Thanks, that looks like the same thing, or very similar, and it starts in 2007, last post in 2017.
