SubjectRe: single bit errors on files stored on USB-HDDs via USB2/usb_storage

Do we have any counters in the USB Stack and the drivers which count the
USB transaction errors?
According to some datasheets (i.e. NXP ISP1563) there are bits called
USB Error and USB Error Interrupt" etc.
Are those should be implemented / counted in the driver stack somewhere?
Okay, simple question...

A quick look into ehci.h tells me that the bit inside of the kernel
is propably called STS_ERR and is used i.e. in ehci_dbg.c 's
and printed through dbg_status_buf() and dbg_intr.buf().
Maybe it's sufficient to turn on debugging and turn the
error flag into an error counter just to get an idea if it cumulates?

Just my five cents,
