Unfortunately, USB no longer works with GL-INET 6416 V 21.02.0-rc1.

This still happens on yesterday's snapshot, same Gl.inet 6416.

The problem seems to be that even if the EHCI HCI driver is loaded the host controller itself isn't there.

I've attached the dmesg.

It seems what was missing is the driver for the controller which is not EHCI, but a Chipidea one. I.e. package kmod-usb-chipidea2 . After installing the package, usb works.

100% agree, it works with kmod-usb-chipidea2.
Thank you !!
