I agree. I will send v2 with this change included.

I am afraid that req->status is managed by usb core. A spin lock
is used to serialize the change of it. The driver could check the
value of req->status, but should not change it (especially change
it without the hold of the lock). Otherwise, it could cause race or
errors in usb core.

This happens in another driver implemented in drivers/mfd/rtsx_usb.c.

static void rtsx_usb_sg_timed_out(unsigned long data)
{
struct rtsx_ucr *ucr = (struct rtsx_ucr *)data;

dev_dbg(&ucr->pusb_intf->dev, "%s: sg transfer timed out", __func__);
usb_sg_cancel(&ucr->current_sg);

/* we know the cancellation is caused by time-out */
ucr->current_sg.status = -ETIMEDOUT;
(^^^^ status being changed by driver without hold of lock)
}

I will send another patch to enhance this later.

Best regards,
Lu Baolu
