Hans de Goede - Oct. 8, 2012, 7:51 a.m.
With the upcoming input pipelining support, large input packets
may get submitted to the device, which require special handling when
the packets ends up being split again by usb-host-linux due to usbfs
limitations. The exact demands for properly handling larger split input
transfers is explained in detail in this libusb commit:

Specifically in the large comment block the commit adds. Note that IMHO
it would be better to just port usb-host-linux to libusb and let libusb
worry about such usbfs details, rather then reproducing all this code
inside host-linux.c

Note that the not proper handling of this currently already can be a problem
when used in combination with an emulated xhci controller, as that can
already submit large enough transfers to trigger this.
