USB: move many drivers to use DEVICE_ATTR_RW

Instead of "open coding" a DEVICE_ATTR() define, use the
DEVICE_ATTR_RW() macro instead, which does everything properly instead.

This does require a few static functions to be renamed to work properly,
but thanks to a script from Joe Perches, this was easily done.

USB: host: ehci: Remove redundant license text

Now that the SPDX tag is in all USB files, that identifies the license
in a specific and legally-defined manner. So the extra GPL text wording
can be removed as it is no longer needed at all.

This is done on a quest to remove the 700+ different ways that files in
the kernel describe the GPL license text. And there's unneeded stuff
like the address (sometimes incorrect) for the FSF which is never

No copyright headers or other non-license-description text was removed.

USB: add SPDX identifiers to all remaining files in drivers/usb/

It's good to have SPDX identifiers in all files to make it easier to
audit the kernel tree for correct licenses.

Update the drivers/usb/ and include/linux/usb* files with the correct
SPDX license identifier based on the license text in the file itself.
The SPDX identifier is a legally binding shorthand, which can be used
instead of the full boiler plate text.

This work is based on a script and data from Thomas Gleixner, Philippe
Ombredanne, and Kate Stewart.

usb: host: ehci-sys: delete useless bus_to_hcd conversion

The ehci platform device's drvdata is the pointer of struct usb_hcd

USB: EHCI: use a bandwidth-allocation table

This patch significantly changes the scheduling code in ehci-hcd.
Instead of calculating the current bandwidth utilization by trudging
through the schedule and adding up the times used by the existing
transfers, we will now maintain a table holding the time used for each
of 64 microframes. This will drastically speed up the bandwidth

In addition, it eliminates a theoretical bug. An isochronous endpoint
may have bandwidth reserved even at times when it has no transfers
listed in the schedule. The table will keep track of the reserved
bandwidth, whereas adding up entries in the schedule would miss it.

As a corollary, we can keep bandwidth reserved for endpoints even
when they aren't in active use. Eventually the bandwidth will be
reserved when a new alternate setting is installed; for now the
endpoint's reservation takes place when its first URB is submitted.

A drawback of this approach is that transfers with an interval larger
than 64 microframes will have to be charged for bandwidth as though
the interval was 64. In practice this shouldn't matter much;
transfers with longer intervals tend to be rather short anyway (things
like hubs or HID devices).

Another minor drawback is that we will keep track of two different
period and phase values: the actual ones and the ones used for
bandwidth allocation (which are limited to 64). This adds only a
small amount of overhead: 3 bytes for each endpoint.

The patch also adds a new debugfs file named "bandwidth" to display
the information stored in the new table.

USB: EHCI: Allow users to override 80% max periodic bandwidth

There are cases, when 80% max isochronous bandwidth is too limiting.

For example I have two USB video capture cards which stream uncompressed
video, and to stream full NTSC + PAL videos we'd need

NTSC 640x480 YUV422 @30fps ~17.6 MB/s
PAL 720x576 YUV422 @25fps ~19.7 MB/s

isoc bandwidth.

Now, due to limited alt settings in capture devices NTSC one ends up
streaming with max_pkt_size=2688 and PAL with max_pkt_size=2892, both
with interval=1. In terms of microframe time allocation this gives

NTSC ~53us
PAL ~57us

and together

~110us > 100us == 80% of 125us uframe time.

So those two devices can't work together simultaneously because the'd
over allocate isochronous bandwidth.

80% seemed a bit arbitrary to me, and I've tried to raise it to 90% and
both devices started to work together, so I though sometimes it would be
a good idea for users to override hardcoded default of max 80% isoc

After all, isn't it a user who should decide how to load the bus? If I
can live with 10% or even 5% bulk bandwidth that should be ok. I'm a USB
newcomer, but that 80% set in stone by USB 2.0 specification seems to be
chosen pretty arbitrary to me, just to serve as a reasonable default.


for two streams with max_pkt_size=3072 (worst case) both time
allocation would be 60us+60us=120us which is 96% periodic bandwidth
leaving 4% for bulk and control. Alan Stern suggested that bulk then
would be problematic (less than 300*8 bittimes left per microframe), but
I think that is still enough for control traffic.


Sarah Sharp expressed concern that maxing out periodic bandwidth
could lead to vendor-specific hardware bugs on host controllers, because

So far I've only tested this patch on my HP Mini 5103 with N10 chipset

02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88E8059 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 11)

and the system works stable with 110us/uframe (~88%) isoc bandwith allocated for
above-mentioned isochronous transfers.


This feature is off by default. I mean max periodic bandwidth is set to
100us/uframe by default exactly as it was before the patch. So only those of us
who need the extreme settings are taking the risk - normal users who do not
alter uframe_periodic_max sysfs attribute should not see any change at all.


I've tried to update documentation in Documentation/ABI/ thoroughly, but
only "TBD" was put into Documentation/usb/ehci.txt -- the text there seems
to be outdated and much needing refreshing, before it could be amended.

USB: EHCI: Move sysfs related bits into ehci-sysfs.c

The only sysfs attr implemented so far is "companion" from ehci-hub.c,
but in the next patch we are going to add another sysfs file, so prior
to that let's structure things and move already-in-there sysfs code to
separate file.

NOTE: All the code I'm moving into this new file was written by Alan
Stern (in 57e06c11 "EHCI: force high-speed devices to run at full
speed"; Jan 16 2007), that's why I'm putting
