Unquestionably it would be for other reasons. usb_kill_urb() is a
host-side routine, not used by gadget drivers. If it fails, the reason
lies in host controller driver. And if people aren't using dummy-hcd
then they must be using a different host controller driver.

Is there any chance you could get hold of a USB device controller for
more fuzzing tests? With it, you could test other parts of the USB
stack: the UDC driver for whatever hardware you get, and the host
controller driver for whatever you plug the UDC into.

I don't know what types of UDC are readily available for the type of
computer syzkaller uses. Perhaps Felipe or other people on the mailing
list will have some suggestions.
