Hi all,

Do anyone know how to turn on and off the power to a USB hub.  I
understand that the USB 1.1 standard has this feature
SET_FEATURE/PORT_ENABLE and your USB hardware has the switches.

We would like to power cycle hardware connected via USB.


Re: Control USB port power on USB hub
I had a look at the code in hub.c and couldn't find any part that
controlled the power.

I've found that if you call:

usb_clear_port_feature(hub->dev, port_num, USB_PORT_FEAT_POWER);

you can turn the power off.  It looks like can hack a proc fs
interface to this.
