Your assumption is correct. Only when the packet gets queued into the transfer
ring, the ul_xfer_cb will be called irrespective of the transfer state (success
or failure). But when the mhi_queue_transfer() returns even before queuing any
packet, then we need to decrease the refcount in the error path.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Mani
