Some of our older ARM devices have external USB ports wired to a low
end dwc2 controller, which puts quite strict timing requirements on
interrupt handling. For some cameras that produce bigger payloads (in
our testing that was Logitech BRIO, running at 1080p), almost half of
every frame would be dropped, due to the memcpy from uncached memory
taking too much time. With this series, it goes down to bottom ~10% of
only a part of the frames. With one more optimization from Keiichi
[1], the problem disappears almost completely.

Best regards,
