I just checked this issue again and concluded that both are reasonable,
the suggestion from me below with the adapter quirk AND your original
patch setting the threshold to 1. With my suggestion the core will
prevent 0-length messages. But still, we should set the threshold to 1
because 0 is a value the HW is not capable of.
