I'm thinking of this scenario:

Since free_ep_fback() is called in a separate thread,
u_audio_iso_fback_complete() can come in the middle after
prm->fb_ep_enabled is cleared but before the usb_ep_dequeue(). So the
request may be freed before being accessed again in usb_ep_dequeue().

> (I don't think this is really related to the current problem though)

It's related to how we go about to solve the problem right?

Can we just check for the req->status for -ECONNRESET and -ESHUTDOWN and
free the request? Those 2 statuses should be for when the request is
cancelled and when the endpoint is disabled.

Ah ok.. I missed that it's IN request.

2 is still too low. From our HW testing, minimum should be 4 to minimize
data loss at 1ms interval.

Why do this when we can avoid it. We know that there will be data drop
with the way it's implemented now. There's no option to adjust the
number of feedback requests either.

Thanks for the updates to audio/f_uac2. It's been a long time since
anyone working on it.
