Moved the "completion"? I was suggesting that the URB resubmission
should be done inline the URB completion handler.

[ "Completion" may be a little ambiguous. The URB callback is called an
URB completion handler. Not be confused with the completion structures
you use to wait for responses. ]

It's fine to keep the helper as long as it's clear that the urb has been
"cached" and should not be resubmitted (inline) in the completion
handler in that case.

Lee merged the helper function earlier today.
