The same issues happen with MacOSX and AGAIN windows is also using the same
buffer size.
Currently there's only one sample available, the production should be
ready by the end of this month.
I can certainly give you one device for playing around as soon as it
is ready but for that

Before that I insist that this patch will go into the kernel (I know
that sounds ridiculous but so far I did everything
you requested me to do), I clearly pointed out that we even have hardware
specs which can influence the transfer buffer. The patch does not hurt
and makes the device work.

Now it turns out that this issue suddenly is interesting because
there's no idea why that can happen.
First priority is to get this device work, second priority is
everything else if Linux support is wanted.

BR,
Markus
