And for those who are curious about the logfiles:
Not working one as proposed by Alan that the full buffer size should
be split into 2 requests:

12288 = 7a1a0840 every Line with 12288 should start with 47 (MPEG-TS Sync byte)

The working one which allocate 7000 bytes more (oh really big memory
pressure now!) than this castrated USBFS interface allows.

everything starts nicely with 0x47

And now everyone again is clueless how this can happen.. surprise surprise..
