quite frankly, I don't know and, because of my email domain, I can't
really say out loud what I really think about those old TI releases :-)

IMHO, the best thing would be to completely ignore old kernels and
have a critical look at that part of the code on MUSB Host. Right now,
MUSB has a really brain dead endpoint allocation algorithm and it only
works for bulk (dynamic allocation, that is). Interrupt and isochronous
are left out of dynamic allocation which, IMHO, makes no sense
what so ever.

I guess the users of MUSB would benefit a whole lot more if someone were
to redesign that logic altogether so that all endpoints can be
dynamically allocated.

One easy way to test things out is to attach a ton of hubs and several
USB Serial adapters to a single MUSB port. All hubs and all USB serial
adapters - of course, as long as you follow USB spec's limitation on
maximum tier level and maximum number of devices.

cheers
