4.9 was the latest kernel when I updated :-( They're coming thick and fast,
4.9 was released in December of 2016, a long time ago in kernel
I built the 4.15.2 kernel using the .config derived from the 4.8.10 kernel.
I just don't have the energy to respond to every single difference in the
(never had to do that in the past), and just accept the defaults. The
appeared while booting the 4.15.2 kernel:
Again, odds are you are missing something you really need here. Odds
are you are missing something like CONFIG_USB_XHCI_PCI or some other
XHCI build option.
I recommend trying a distro kernel on this machine, and if that works,
running 'make localmodconfig' with that distro kernel running to get a
working configuration file.
Distro kernels are too old.
The XHCI options are already modules. Here's the appropriate part of
the config file. Can you see a problem?
# USB Host Controller Drivers
# CONFIG_USB_SL811_HCD_ISO is not set
# CONFIG_USB_HCD_BCMA is not set
# CONFIG_USB_HCD_TEST_MODE is not set
