> The patch allowed successfully running full-speed USB PWC webcams
> attached directly to BeagleBone Black USB port.

> However, the second part of the issue is still present for

> musb_advance_schedule() to allow host to send IN request quicker.
>
> The patch series is organized as the following. First three patches
> improve readability of the existing code in
> musb_advance_schedule(). Patches 4 and 5 introduce updated
> signature for musb_start_urb(). The last patch introduce new
> code-path in musb_advance_schedule() which allows for faster
