Here's what I wrote earlier: "It looks like the problem stems from the fact 
that port100_send_frame_async() submits two URBs, but 
port100_send_cmd_sync() only waits for one of them to complete.  The other 
URB may then still be active when the driver tries to reuse it."

Of course, there may be more than one problem, so we may not be talking 
about the same thing.

Does that help at all?
