Comment is correct as is, but will reword to make things clearer.

Yeah, this flag has different behavior on the hardware than you're
expecting. Active will be set for the duration of the command no
matter the size of the transfer or across how many interrupts the
transfer takes, including after we're done on our side
(port->tx_remaining is zero).
