Description Clemente Aguiar 2011-01-11 17:28:21 UTC
I have GNOME desktop, and if I selected "Safely Remove Drive" on a USB pen drive I would get an error similar to this:
unable to stop drive

Error detaching: helper exited with exit code 1: Detaching device /dev/sde
USB device: /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.7/usb5/5-6)
SYNCHRONIZE CACHE: FAILED: No such file or directory
(Continuing despite SYNCHRONIZE CACHE failure.)
Unbinding USB interface driver: OK
Suspending USB device: FAILED: Cannot open /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.7/usb5/5-6/power/level for writing: No such file or directory
After I rebuild the kernel with CONFIG_PM_RUNTIME and CONFIG_USB_SUSPEND enabled, as per suggestion in this forum, it worked.

Reproducible: Always

Comment 1 Samuli Suominen gentoo-dev 2011-01-12 11:24:47 UTC
I'd just like to add:

- It's sys-fs/udisks that need CONFIG_USB_SUSPEND. The udisks ebuild has a check for it. This would be an issue for GNOME too, since gvfs is using gnome-disk-utility which is using udisks.

- On x86 and x86_64, kernel's default config has =y for CONFIG_USB_SUSPEND. Does genkernel somehow disable the kernel defaults? I really don't know, I've never used genkernel myself.
Comment 2 Sebastian Pipping gentoo-dev 2011-01-22 00:35:55 UTC
It seems that if you're on x86 or amd64 you currently get a kernel with CONFIG_USB_SUSPEND disabled from genkernel:

./defaults/kernel-config:# CONFIG_USB_SUSPEND is not set
./arch/x86_64/kernel-config:# CONFIG_USB_SUSPEND is not set
./arch/ia64/kernel-config:# CONFIG_USB_SUSPEND is not set
./arch/x86/kernel-config:# CONFIG_USB_SUSPEND is not set


I have now enabled CONFIG_USB_SUSPEN on x86/amd64 for you.
Please test by emerging genkernel-99999 (five nines).;a=commitdiff;h=954670ea2ffafa55e29c2b50aaf83a85eb3bf265

If needed, please re-open this bug.
Comment 3 Clemente Aguiar 2011-01-24 16:07:52 UTC
I have emerged genkernel-9999 and tested it, but unfortunately it is still not working for me.

I am using latest stable gentoo-sources kernel (sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.36-r5)

I run:
$ genkernel all

If I grep the config files in /usr/src/linux I get the following:

$ grep CONFIG_PM_RUNTIME .config*
.config:# CONFIG_PM_RUNTIME is not set

The .config file has neither CONFIG_PM_RUNTIME nor CONFIG_USB_SUSPEND enabled.

$ grep CONFIG_USB_SUSPEND .config*

The .config.old file has the CONFIG_USB_SUSPEND enabled, but not CONFIG_PM_RUNTIME.

When I look at the help for CONFIG_USB_SUSPEND of the "make menuconfig" I get the following information:

Symbol: USB_SUSPEND [=n]
Type  : boolean
Prompt: USB runtime power management (autosuspend) and wakeup
Defined at drivers/usb/core/Kconfig:93
Depends on: USB_SUPPORT [=y] && USB [=m] && PM_RUNTIME [=y]
-> Device Drivers
-> USB support (USB_SUPPORT [=y])
-> Support for Host-side USB (USB [=m]) 

From this I gather that CONFIG_USB_SUSPEND is dependent of CONFIG_PM_RUNTIME, which means that CONFIG_PM_RUNTIME has also to be enabled in genkernel, is this not so?
Comment 4 Sebastian Pipping gentoo-dev 2011-01-30 01:13:59 UTC
I have applied "make oldconfig" of 2.6.36-gentoo-r5 to the config of x86_64 now;a=commitdiff;h=43a68e89d1d2727b55093061ac1fa8688e4abb6c

and enabled both switches using "make menuconfig";a=commitdiff;h=f0b5065d61578883f88d9623b0febe504591de06

Please re-emerge genkernel-99999 (five nines) and report back.
Comment 5 Sebastian Pipping gentoo-dev 2011-01-30 22:38:38 UTC
genkernel just hit the main tree, patches included.
Please re-open this bug as needed.
Comment 6 Clemente Aguiar 2011-01-31 14:56:38 UTC
Tried both genkernel 99999 and and now it is ok.

$ grep CONFIG_PM_RUNTIME .config*

$ grep CONFIG_USB_SUSPEND .config*
