The issue is less about the internals of the device and more about the
cabling that the device is connected to.  In the target application of
this device, the USB cables are almost always longer than the spec
limit of the USB standard for high speed.  Given our use cases, we
don't have need for high speed so limiting the max speed to full speed
is the way we work around cables that are too long for stable high
speed operation.

We have validated that running with full speed does mitigate the
problems experienced when attempting to run with high speed on the
target application installations.
