Hi Sam, sorry for the delay.

I've read the thread above and the patch. Unfortunately we don't have
documentation on how the driver is supposed to work and how the iPhone part
behave, everything was reverse engineered at the time and the people who did
it seem long gone.

As far as I understand it, when we experienced the “first” bug, it was noted
that reducing the (TX) buffer size by 2 helped, and thus the patch changing
IPHETH_BUF_SIZE to 1514 was committed, reducing both RX and TX buffer size.

During my testings I never experienced the subsequent bug (the
ipheth_rcvbulk_callback: urb status: -75) but maybe I never received 1500b
packets (it's a bit strange but maybe).

Maybe the right fix would be to split IPHETH_BUF_SIZE to
IPHETH_{RX,TX}_BUF_SIZE? Something like:
