This is relating to my previous post "[edk2] Is this a right place to discuss 
EDK2's USB IF implementation?" 
We found a mismatch between EDK2 source code and our USB vendor's 
implementation. Could you give us your opinions?

bInterfaceNumber , 9.6.5 Interface from Universal Serial Bus 3.1 Specification 
Rev 1.0 says;
Number of this interface. Zero-based value identifying the index in the array 
of concurrent interfaces supported by this configuration.

Regarding this.
EDK2 source code (UsbDesc.c) says:
  // If a configuration has several interfaces, these interfaces are
  // numbered from zero to n...

The USB vendor says:
* Numbering is not necessarily consecutive * Each interface can be 
independently turned on/off * Solution allows any combination of interfaces 
without re-defining the interface number * One general lookup table can tell 
you what interface is assigned to what interface number.
* For these reasons, the interface definition is like this on our products.
* The interface definition has remained the same from the previous products, 
and other products before that.
* Current interface numbering is supported by all Microsoft OS * Other PC OEM 
customers have never raised this issue

As a result, the vendor's USB IF looks like below.

===>Configuration Descriptor<===
bNumInterfaces:                    0x02                         <<<<
bConfigurationValue:               0x01
iConfiguration:                    0x00
bmAttributes:                      0xA0  -> Bus Powered
  -> Remote Wakeup
          ===>Interface Descriptor<===
bInterfaceNumber:                  0x0C                         <<<<    
Interface Number starts from 0x0C instead of 0. [comment from Yosuke]
bAlternateSetting:                 0x00
bNumEndpoints:                     0x01

          ===>Interface Descriptor<===
bInterfaceNumber:                  0x0D                            <<<<
bAlternateSetting:                 0x00
bNumEndpoints:                     0x00

and it hits the following ON_ERROR in UsbDesc.c.
    } else if (Setting->Desc.InterfaceNumber >= NumIf) {
      DEBUG (( EFI_D_ERROR, "UsbParseConfigDesc: mal-formated interface 

      UsbFreeInterfaceDesc (Setting);
      goto ON_ERROR;

What do you think the vendor's implementation?
Also, have you ever had such a USB IF mismatch between EDK2 and USB vendors 
before? If so, how are you handling such cases in general?

Kind regards,
