I meant it isn't _my_ driver. ;)

I'm just trying to add some würgarounds without having the need to
rewrite the whole driver.

In regard to that "urb missing problem", I think I've just named it
wrong and the actual problem is a race-condition between the semaphore
handling (which is used to keep track of the urbs) and the urb handling
inside the driver.

But I've just switched to udl (instead of udlfb) and will see if I can
fix the bugs there to make it usable as a console. udl is a rewrite of
udlfb with some additional features (e.g. drm), so hopefully fixing the
remaining problems there will require less work.
