The USB spec says the device "can depend only on the fact that the host will
ensure that the time duration between two transaction attempts with the
endpoint will be no longer than the desired period. Note that errors on the
bus can prevent an interrupt transaction from being successfully delivered
over the bus and consequently exceed the desired period. Also, the endpoint
is only polled when the software client has an IRP for an interrupt transfer
So the device can't be that picky about the exact uframe the transfer is
I will do both Interrupt IN and OUT. And if an Interrupt EP with a very short
interval is submitted, or an Isoch EP, then I will revert to unmasking the
SOF interrupt and handling all periodic EPs the old way.
Yeah, I'm not sure this will work either, but I'll give it a try.
