Unfortunately no, I couldn't find any workaround.
xhci slot and endpoint context values for both the HS hub, and the full/low speed device seem correct.

I was able to reproduce the issue with an external HS hub as well, so this issue
appears to be more related to ASMedia host than the built in HS hub in TB16
