"in dwc3 driver" is an implementation choice. The situation you describe
could happen with any UDC, right?

We should get in touch with other UDC authors. We have at least Renesas,
net2280, bcd_udc and mtu3 supporting superspeed.

why? When the situation you describe is something that can happen with
any udc, why should we reimplement the solution on all UDCs supporting
streams when we can give generic support for handling certain

Why difficult? udc-core would call:

mod_timer(gadget->stream_timeout_timer, msecs_to_jiffies(50));

Once you receive stream event, dwc3 would call:

if (timer_pending(dwc->gadget.stream_timeout_timer))

Why is that difficult? You could even avoid anything to be written in
dwc3 and put the del_timer() inside usb_gadget_giveback_request()
itself. That why, dwc3 doesn't even have to know that there's a timer
running. Also, you're timer function, instead of calling dwc3's private
functions, should be relying on the gadget API.

Your timer, apparently, should be fired per-request, then your timer
function would call:


If the timer expires. This would work for any UDC, not only dwc3. Then,
this is something we document for all UDCs and they'd have to adhere to
the API.

In summary, not that many changes needed to dwc3. Nothing related to
timers inside dwc3. Almost everythin can, and should, be done
