Re-reading the USB-2.0 standard, a short packet which terminates
the transfer is defined by packet_size < wMaxPacketSize,
not by packet_size < 512.
Thus wMaxPacketSize == 188 (or 2*188) might be possible.

There is a comment in linux/drivers/usb/host/ehci-q.c:

Maybe we should look at the descriptors?
