Subject: [036/272] USB: fix race between root-hub resume and wakeup requests

2.6.37-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Alan Stern <>

commit bf3d7d40e42a85ca73a34e1385ff34f092a384eb upstream.

The USB core keeps track of pending resume requests for root hubs, in
order to resolve races between wakeup requests and suspends.  However
the code that does this is subject to another race (between wakeup
requests and resumes) because the WAKEUP_PENDING flag is cleared
before the resume occurs, leaving a window in which another wakeup
request might arrive.

This patch (as1447) fixes the problem by clearing the WAKEUP_PENDING
flag after the resume instead of before it.

This fixes Bugzilla #24952.
