Description:
After upgrade to 5.13.4-arch1-1 some USB hubs aren't detected. Dmesg shows error:

[ 3.809688] xhci_hcd 0000:08:00.0: Direct firmware load for renesas_usb_fw.mem failed with error -2
[ 3.809690] xhci_hcd 0000:08:00.0: request_firmware failed: -2
[ 3.809945] xhci_hcd: probe of 0000:08:00.0 failed with error -2

Downgrade to 5.12.15-arch1-1 solves the problem.

Hubs work with 5.13.4 but upd72020x-fw from AUR is now required.

Same problem here, causing the webcam not to be found.

Also this error:

xhci_hcd 0000:05:00.0: Direct firmware load for renesas_usb_fw.mem failed with error -2
xhci_hcd 0000:05:00.0: request_firmware failed: -2

Seems that revert that fixes the issue has been merged into 5.13.6: https://lkml.org/lkml/2021/7/28/499

Yes, I can confirm: issue is solved in 5.13.6

@dimich could you please confirm that issue is resolved and, if yes, request closure of this bug? Thank you.

I can confirm, after upgrade to 5.13.6-arch1-1 Renesas USB hubs work without additional firmware package.
