here take your usbmon logs: (this is with your proposed
split up of 22k).

Isochronous already supports up to 190kb buffers which cause no
trouble anywhere.
Bulk is castrated to 15kb buffers and 50kb should be such a big issue
while applications
which do not request it are not affected at all.

I'm very angry that you do not really focus on what I write and just
try to write stories about
bogus things like my patch might break other applications while I
pointed out that this is not
possible with legacy applications which use this interface. It is not
even possible to read the
maximum buffer value from the kernelspace.

Your bogus message about 1Gig ram you can put it elsewhere, I checked
multiple windows drivers
in the past the buffer size varies between small and something around
50k usually.
I would fully like to avoid to patch this kernel to get those things
work because I don't want to
deal with people who just write around the actual issues.

Alsi the fact that bigger buffers are already being used plus the HW
specifications of our main device also points out to a certain
buffersize near 50k. But of course you are the smart knowitall without
the need of explanation why
those things can be affected by HW and some HW chips have options to
influence that buffer size.

I'm certainly angry,
