there was also another recent thread about this and the final plan was
to simply increase the rx urb size setting to the highest value we are
aware of (see https://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-usb/msg198858.html):
this should solve the babble issue without breaking aggregation.

The change should be simple, I was just waiting to perform some sanity
tests with different models I have. Hope to have it done by this week.

Regards,
Daniele
