I am trying to compile a kernel for my R61 with C2D and Quadro 140, but there is one option I do not know how to set. It is
USB Peripheral Controller.

There is 8 options and none tells me anything.

Any clues?

If I might ask, is there a particular reason that you're compiling your own kernel?

Also, why not just base your config off of your distro's defaults?

Because 2.6.38 breaks ability to shut down by itself and I cannot get default config anywhere.
Anyway, I have already compiled a working kernel with the modules I need.

If you're using a Debian-based distro, the distro's kernel configs should be in /boot.

That aside, 2.6.38 definitely does *not* display that regression on any of the *60-series machines I have at my disposal. Sounds like a user configuration issue to me.

As far as your original question, where is the option that you're referring to (i.e. what's the full path to it?)

Can't remember. It is somewhere in USB controller setup.

The issue I mentioned is definitely a 2.6.38 bug. There is many reports on it causing the computer to freeze just before it reboots/shuts down. 2.6.37 with the same config works like a dream.

I can't reproduce any freeze before reboot/shutdown on debian squeeze / wheezy (testing) / sid (unstable) with 2.6.38.6. I can, however, reproduce other bugs that were introduced in .38 and are fixed in .39, so I'm currently waiting on .37 as well :(

Right... well... I'm afraid I can't really explain what the feature you're referring to is if I don't know what it is that you're referring to. :D

Interesting. Got a link to or number for the bug(s) in question? I'm interested to see if I can reproduce this on any of my machines.
