How does this recursion happen? There is literal recursion in the task
context? A function starts a remote coverage section and calls another
function that also starts a remote coverage section?

Or is there recursion between task context and softirq context? But
this should not happen if softirq's disabled around
usb_hcd_giveback_urb call in task context...

We do want to collect coverage from usb_hcd_giveback_urb in the task
context eventually, right?
Is this API supposed to be final? Or it only puts down fire re the warning?

I don't understand how this API can be used in other contexts.
Let's say there is recursion in task context and we want to collect
coverage in task context (the function is only called in task
context). This API won't help.
Let's say a function is called from both task and softirq context and
these can recurse (softirq arrive while in remote task section). This
API won't help. It will force to choose either task or softirq, but
let's say you can't make that choice because they are equally
important.
The API helps to work around the unimplemented recursion in KCOV, but
it's also specific to this particular case. It's not necessary that
recursion is specific to one context only and it's not necessary that
a user can choose to sacrifice one of the contexts.
Also, if we support recursion in one way or another, we will never
want to use this API, right?
