This kernel, together with 5.13.2-300.fc34, has severly broken USB device detection for me.

All of the devices shown below have disappeared from my lsusb output:

Bus 003 Device 009: ID 08bb:29c3 Texas Instruments PCM2903C Audio CODEC Bus 003 Device 008: ID 10c4:ea60 Silicon Labs CP210x UART Bridge Bus 003 Device 007: ID 10c4:ea60 Silicon Labs CP210x UART Bridge Bus 003 Device 005: ID 0424:2514 Microchip Technology, Inc. (formerly SMSC) USB 2.0 Hub Bus 003 Device 003: ID 0d8c:0135 C-Media Electronics, Inc. Q9-1 Bus 003 Device 006: ID 08bb:2901 Texas Instruments PCM2901 Audio Codec Bus 003 Device 004: ID 10c4:ea60 Silicon Labs CP210x UART Bridge Bus 003 Device 002: ID 0451:2046 Texas Instruments, Inc. TUSB2046 Hub Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0bda:8771 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. Bluetooth Radio

In all honesty, with 800 odd patches from upstream, these kernels have had a huge number of opportunities to be broken.

This update's test gating status has been changed to 'passed'.

Looks like you lost the host controller, did you open a bug with an attached dmesg and such? I didn't see it.

Default & performance tests pass (KVM)

OK, this is the difference between the working and failing cases using lsusb

Looks like the problem device is this:

I will try to extract the relevant information from dmesg and file a bug.

This is the relevant bit of the dmesg from 5.12.17 and 5.13.2, it seems that it's a firmware load failure in the Renesas USB hub/controller

Does this need further reporting in bugzilla?

Looks ok for me. Runs since it was ready in koji. Works on baremetal (non UEFI mode) AMD Ryzen5 3600, Mainboard MSI B450M Mortar Max with prop. nvidia driver from rpmfusion.org (GTX980 card). Works with Gnome-Desktop (Xorg). Regression test passed (paxtest, selinux-dac-controls and libhugetlbfs skipped).

This update can be pushed to stable now if the maintainer wishes

4 for 4 resumes tested. Currently both kernels starting with 5.12.15 pop out my disc tray on resume. I don't really want prank kernels. 5.12.14 and older doesn't pop it out.
