Thanks keith. We are seeing the condition for transactions greater than 256 KB.
We did try increase IO timeout to 60sec but we still see issue.

We do see spurious interrupts as following:
count 53224
unhandled 15890
last_unhandled 4294917520 ms

If there are spurious interrupts, isn't the EP handler called more times
and this might help EP driver to process pending completions. (Because as per the code in 4.14 EP
driver isn't checking any interrupt status register, it starts processing completion queues immediately
in interrupt handler)

If we have spurious why do we still see completion polled ?
