OK, I've oversimplified... what I meant was that even if you start a
transfer at the UDC level, nothing will happen on the bus until HW sees
an OUT token. The buffer pointed to by req->buf won't get any writes,
DMA won't do anything.

On (2) I meant that some HW (e.g. dwc3) will assert the IRQ line once
they see a token for which they have to transfer descriptors in the
internal controller's cache.

in HS there's also NYET

they're not required, but they can. It's UDC driver's responsability to
start consuming the queue at the proper time.

correct.
