Could you refer to
``Table 126: Offset 0Ch – Link TRB Field Definitions''
in  xHCI_Specification_for_USB.pdf(Revision 1.0)?

The following is an excerpt about the CHAIN ​​BIT.

    Chain bit (CH). Set to ‘1’ by software to associate this TRB with
    the next TRB on the Ring. A Transfer Descriptor (TD) is defined as
    one or more TRBs. The Chain bit is used to identify the TRBs that
    comprise a TD. Refer to section 4.11.7 for more information on Link
    TRB placement within a TD. On a Command Ring this bit is ignored by
    the xHC.

I think that we should add XHCI_TRB_3_CHAIN_BIT to line 1895.
How do you think?

Hi Kohji,

The double word written at line 1895 does not set the "chain bit"
because this
is the end of a transfer descriptor, TD. I'm unsure how hardware
this bit, if setting the bit on the previous TRB makes the next one
connect to
the previous one, or the other way around. If setting this bit makes
the TRB
connect to the previous one, you are correct. Else the current code is

Hi, HPS,

Thank you for your comment.

I think that this (line 1895) is not the end of a transfer descriptor.
When the device driver needs a Zero Length Packet, this is not the
end. And, If xfer has nframes, this is not the end, too.

Hi Kohji,

Yes, you are right that if nframes is greater than one, and/or if a ZLP
needs to be sent this is not the end of the USB transfers. Are we sure
that if the XHCI_TRB_3_CHAIN_BIT is added at line 1895, that we will
receive a completion TRB-event for each of the nframes, or will the
chain bit result in loss of TRB completion events?

Does setting this bit have any impact on performance?

Thank you!


Some more thoughts:

The code in question handle all four USB transfer types. Are you saying that the CHAIN bit should be set for isochronous transfers too, so all the packets send in all the intervals are chained together? Or is this only for BULK traffic you want to add the CHAIN bit?

Thank you!
