I only suggested we should handle -EPIPE for usb_submit_urb
on interrupt endpoint, maybe it is the 1st handling, at least it is
per USB spec.

Also from implementation of usb gadget device, generally
ClearFeature(HALT) is to clear the some halt related flag of
endpoint hardware.

Looks the reasons of interrupt endpoint stalling is invisible
for usbnet driver, so it is not easy to handle the situation
you described(halted and cleared repeatedly).

Suppose the case will happen, what is the appropriate actions
usbnet should take on the failure? I am not sure RESET can deal
with it.

Also is it a actual failure case or only a theory case?
