I won't have time today to check, though my guess is that on each

under /sys/bus/hid/drivers/hid-picolcd/ the USB urb queue fills a bit does
not get cleared.

Is usb_kill_urb() called when unbinding just the specific hid driver? If so
my short timing between bind/unbind must be triggering something else...

Otherwise I'm missing something as at first time I got no "output queue full"
messages, but as I repeated the bind/unbind sequences the prints per bind/unbind
iteration increased in number.

Anyhow, on Friday evening/week-end I will continue digging and report back with my
