From: Hans de Goede <hdegoede@redhat.com>

At least one device I have lies when receiving a USB_REQ_GET_INTERFACE,
always returning 0 even if the alternate setting is different. This is
likely caused because in practice this control message is never used as
the operating system's usb stack knows which alternate setting it has
told the device to get into, and thus this ctrl message does not get
tested by device manufacturers.

When usb_fs_type == USB_FS_SYS, the active alt. setting can be read directly
from sysfs, which allows using this device through qemu's usb redirection.
More in general it seems a good idea to not send needless control msg's to
devices, esp. as the code in question is called every time a set_interface
is done. Which happens multiple times during virtual machine startup, and
when device drivers are activating the usb device.
