At first sight, I thought the same way, then I took a look into
commit:

1c9de5bf428612458427943b724bea51abde520a

and noticed that the original developer properly added fall-through
comments in other places in the same switch() code, that gave me the
impression he knew what he was doing; then I noticed the following
error message in case USB_PORT_FEAT_U2_TIMEOUT:

	if (hcd->speed != HCD_USB3) {
		pr_err("USB_PORT_FEAT_U1/2_TIMEOUT req not "
		       "supported for USB 2.0 roothub\n");
		goto error;
	}

this error message is what makes me think the fall-through is
intentional; otherwise I think it would look like this instead:

	if (hcd->speed != HCD_USB3) {
		pr_err("USB_PORT_FEAT_U2_TIMEOUT req not "
		       "supported for USB 2.0 roothub\n");
		goto error;
	}

Thanks
