Where does QMI_WDA_SET_DATA_FORMAT come from?

And the commit log says that this "depends on the chipset being used",
so why don't you know that at probe time, does the chipset change?  :)

Why not just set it really high to start with?  That should not affect
any older devices, as the urb size does not matter.  The only thing is
if it is too small that things can not move as fast as they might be
able to.
