Bounced it to you. FYI, patchwork.kernel.org should have it too, the
"mbox" option there works the best.

No that's a completely missing pm_runtime_get on this one that's the
most likely cause.

Yeah that would be nice, needs all the missing use cases fixed first
though..

OK, well let's hope the patch linked above fixes it. At some point the
number of musb fixes should just start going down if I'm predicting right :)

Anyways, hitting these issues during late -rc cycle is too late. We
really should have some n900 usability testing for core features with
Linux next on at least weekly basis.

I've noticed that testing with Linux next is way less effort than chasing
bugs every -rc cycle when it's too late. For about past four months or so
next has been usable for me with only occasional minor issues that get
fixed within a day or two.

Tony
