You are right, this only happens with USB 1.1 devices! The only USB1
device I have is my logitech mouse.
However, its behaviour is really strange.
If I plug it in directly into a USB port in the laptop I get this:
usb 3-1: new low speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 3
usb 3-1: New USB device found, idVendor=3D046d, idProduct=3Dc01d
usb 3-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=3D1, Product=3D2, SerialNumber=3D0
usb 3-1: Product: USB-PS/2 Optical Mouse
usb 3-1: Manufacturer: Logitech
But if I plug it in the mini dock, I get this:
usb 1-5.3: new low speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 16
usb 1-5.3: New USB device found, idVendor=3D046d, idProduct=3Dc01d
usb 1-5.3: New USB device strings: Mfr=3D1, Product=3D2, SerialNumber=3D0
usb 1-5.3: Product: USB-PS/2 Optical Mouse
usb 1-5.3: Manufacturer: Logitech
So if I plug it in the dock, I get C4/C6 state on AC/battery and it
But if I plug it directly on the laptop in any usb plug, I don't get
more than C3 state and it uses uhci-hcd.
If I remove the uhci-hcd module when the mouse is plugged directly to
the laptop, it stops working.
Is this some sort of bug or is it normal?
