I don't have a standalone example. But the issue occurs if you submit a
request when using function_fs through the AIO API and then call
io_cancel() to abort it. At the same time there must be traffic on the
USB bus so that the URB has a chance to complete.

This is a race condition between the IRQ handler running on one CPU and
the usb_ep_dequeue() running on another CPU. As such it might take a
while of stress testing before it is triggered. The more CPUs your
system has the higher the chance of trigger the issue.

You can find the code which triggers the issue below.

Submission of the request:

Canceling it:
