Hi Sundeep,

Please see section "Buffer Size Rules and Zero-Length Packets"
in the databook:

	For OUT endpoints, the following rules apply:

	- The total size of a Buffer Descriptor must be a multiple of

The wording may be a little confusing, it actually means that the size
of the data buffer for OUT endpoints must be a multiple of MaxPacketSize.
Section 8.2.5 states it more clearly:

	- An OUT transfer’s transfer size (Total TRB buffer allocation)
	  must be a multiple of MaxPacketSize even if software is expecting
        a fixed non-multiple of MaxPacketSize transfer from the Host.

This rule applies to all OUT endpoint types, including Control endpoints.
