But for latency you should submit URBs as soone as possible within that
limit, which generally means small buffers.

How about setting the upper limit to URBs in flight based on the baud
rate? Faster transfers deserve more URBs, right? Assuming some
minimum number of bytes per URB (4? 8?), there should be enough URBs to
fill a pipeline whose length is around 5 ms or so (interrupt latency).
