2.6.24-rc3-git3: usb hardware interrupts using 25% of CPU time

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

 



I installed Linux 2.6.24-rc3-git3 on a PPC based Apple Powerbook G4 
system. Now with top I see that over 20% of CPU time is used by hardware 
interrupts. Looking at /proc/interrupts, the number in the row 
ohci_hcd:usb1 is rising very quickly:

$ cat /proc/interrupts
