I could, however 'vnt_start_interrupt_urb()' already call 'dev_dbg()' if
it fails. Nothing is done after this debug call except returning an
error code.

'vnt_int_start_interrupt()' should, IMHO, return a status code, but the
original developer may have good reasons not to do so.

Thank you,
Quentin
