It's OK to place in format.c as a start.

Ah sorry I wasn't clear enough. What I meant as "unit" is the USB
descriptor unit (aka widget), a feature unit, a terminal, whatever.
Does this error appear only once at parsing, or does it hit multiple
times per device?

It might be some fixed list without inquiries?

Well, the error happens always on your device in the very same way,
right? Then we don't have to send the specific command that leads to
an error, but takes the fixed 48k from the beginning.

The fallback might be good, but I'm not sure whether there are many
devices that hit the same problem. If we encounter more, let's try to
make it as a fallback.
