why not? wLength tells you that this is a 3-stage transfer. Gadget
driver should be able to figure out that it needs to usb_ep_queue()
another request for status stage.

no we don't :-)

explicit setup? no
explicit status? yes

If you don't wanna do it, it's fine :-) I'll just add to my TODO
list. It just depends on how much other tasks you have on your end ;-)
