My company (Silicon Labs) makes a CP2615 USB audio class 1.0 device which uses implicit feedback.  I saw these two issues when testing with aplay/arecord/alsabat/alsaloop:


  *   During playback-only operation, the implicit feedback (IN) endpoint was not active.


  *   During play/record operation, the implicit feedback values were not acted on, i.e. the host always sent 192 bytes per OUT packet even if previous IN packets had been 188 or 196 bytes.

This behavior was observed on these systems:

RaspberryPi2:    Raspbian 9 (stretch), kernel v4.14.72
x86-64:                 Ubuntu 18.04, kernel v4.15.0-36

I was able to get implicit feedback working properly in playback mode by adding a device-specific quirk to 'pcm.c' that is similar to existing quirks for implicit-feedback devices, e.g. M-Audio Fast Track Ultra.  (Note: The following patch applies to kernel v4.14.72.  In v4.18, the set_sync_ep_implicit_fb_quirk function was changed so that there is a single call to usb_ifnum_to_if(), rather than a call for each device-dependent quirk.)

After adding the patch, I verified that implicit feedback worked properly for playback, i.e. the OUT samples per packet tracked previous IN values.  However, when attempting to perform simultaneous play and record via alsabat, alsaloop, or separate aplay/arecord, the system reports the 'endpoint already in use' error when attempting to set the format for the IN endpoint that is already in use (note that this dmesg log has customized printk messages):

I bought a used Fast Track Ultra device for comparison testing, and found that it behaved the same way as the CP2615 does with the implicit feedback quirk: in playback-only mode implicit feedback works properly, but play/record causes the 'EP already in use' error.

Are there any suggestions on how I can resolve this issue?  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Bob Giaraffa
