    I can't tell about the device(NDA), and don't remember the HCD and I can
    check it only after holidays.

    Sounds reasonable. So, I'll go thru the HCD code instead if the
    responsibility is there. Am i the first one to run into such crash
    situation? If so, perhaps it's not ever worthy to fix in mainstream
    kernel, as the device causes the crash under very specific -
    'abusing' one might say, situation only.
