The code that implements it computes wrong values for the bandwidth
utilization. This doesn't seem to matter much for full speed stereo
devices, but we have several bug reports for multichannel and/or high
speed devices where usb_submit_urb() incorrectly returns -ENOSPC
The comment above the usb_check_bandwidth() function in hcd.c lists
several of the known bugs.
Perhaps CONFIG_USB_BANDWIDTH should have been marked BROKEN instead of
