not sure this is something acceptable, let's wait for Bjørn to comment.

I did not test for performance, but you could be right since for
example, if I'm not wrong, rx_qlen for an high-speed device would be 2
with the changed rx_urb_size.

So, we'll probably need to modify also usbnet_update_max_qlen, but not
sure about the direction (maybe fallback to a default value to
guarantee a minimum number if rx_qlen is < than a threshold?). And
this is also a change affecting all the drivers using usbnet, so it
requires additional care.

Let's wait for the maintainers' advice also on this.

Regards,
Daniele
