V4L/DVB (9300): pvrusb2: Fix deadlock problem
Fix deadlock problem in 2.6.27 caused by new USB core behavior in response to a USB device reset request. With older kernels, the USB device reset was "in line"; the reset simply took place and the driver retained its association with the hardware. However now this reset triggers a disconnect, and worse still the disconnect callback happens in the context of the caller who asked for the device reset. This results in an attempt by the pvrusb2 driver to recursively take a mutex it already has, which deadlocks the driver's worker thread. (Even if the disconnect callback were to happen on a different thread we'd still have problems however - because while the driver should survive and correctly disconnect / reconnect, it will then trigger another device reset during the repeated initialization, which will then cause another disconect, etc, forever.) The fix here is simply to not attempt the device reset (it was of marginal value anyway). Signed-off-by: Mike Isely <isely@pobox.com> Signed-off-by: Mauro Carvalho Chehab <mchehab@redhat.com>
