Subject: [patch] usbnet: fix 100% CPU use on suspended device
From: Elly Jones <>

This patch causes the usbnet module not to attempt to submit URBs to the device
if the device is not ready to accept them. This fixes a misbehavior trigged by
the Qualcomm Gobi driver (released under GPL through their Code Aurora
initiative) which causes the usbnet core to consume 100% of CPU attempting and
failing to submit URBs. This patch is against Linus's 2.6 repo commit
