    That's rather strange since it means a *success* (urb->status 0) was
    reported after a short read (scatterlist status -120, -EREMOTEIO).

    The hardware should have stopped queue processing after the short
    read, because of how qtd->hw_alt_next gets set up ... at least,
    that's how I remember it, these many years after writing that code.

    It might be that because of the issue noted below, it was wrongly
    restarted by the software.

    That one just means nobody updated that test to recognize that
    the -ESHUTDOWN (-108) triggered after disconnect is a "clean"
    failure like the ones triggered by unlinking.

    However it also indicates that something changed in the unlink
    code paths, since I see the *expected* code (-ECONNRESET) is no
    longer being set by usbcore during unlinks ... it's not quite
    clear to me what else that change will have broken. Including
    whether that might not explain how the hardware queue got wrongly
    restarted after the short read above.
