Subject: Re: Is this 32-bit NCM?

Thank you Bjorn for the help and suggestions.
These are parameters that the driver ends up choosing:
/sys/class/net/wwan0/cdc_ncm/bmNtbFormatsSupported:0x0003
/sys/class/net/wwan0/cdc_ncm/dwNtbInMaxSize:131072
/sys/class/net/wwan0/cdc_ncm/dwNtbOutMaxSize:16384
/sys/class/net/wwan0/cdc_ncm/min_tx_pkt:14848
/sys/class/net/wwan0/cdc_ncm/rx_max:16384
/sys/class/net/wwan0/cdc_ncm/tx_max:16384
/sys/class/net/wwan0/cdc_ncm/tx_timer_usecs:400
/sys/class/net/wwan0/cdc_ncm/wNdpInAlignment:4
/sys/class/net/wwan0/cdc_ncm/wNdpInDivisor:4
/sys/class/net/wwan0/cdc_ncm/wNdpInPayloadRemainder:2
/sys/class/net/wwan0/cdc_ncm/wNdpOutAlignment:4
/sys/class/net/wwan0/cdc_ncm/wNdpOutDivisor:4
/sys/class/net/wwan0/cdc_ncm/wNdpOutPayloadRemainder:2
/sys/class/net/wwan0/cdc_ncm/wNtbOutMaxDatagrams:0

Sorry if I did not report them before. If I missed someone in CC please add it 
guys.
Kevin - after you discovered that the device might handle the offset in a 
different way, have you tried this approach?
