The Linux is more tolerant here as well: Just stop parsing the device
descriptors when an error is detected but do not reset what was found
so far. This allows to run buggy devices with partially invalid
descriptors.

I'd prefer to keep the error jump target to handle the parse error here.
Dumping the reset there is fine with me, but I'd prefer this event being
logged (trace point or stderr message or both) to ease trouble shooting
in case a device doesn't behave as expected.

thanks,
  Gerd

That would be "over-logging" as we already record the individual
reasons. There is simply no code to jump to after the refactoring.

Oh, right, we trace that already.  Ok then.

Patch added to usb patch queue.
