So i got around to this again:

Changes to linux-5.6.0 drivers/net/wireless/ralink/rt2x00/rt2x00usb.c were:

static bool rt2x00usb_check_usb_error(struct rt2x00_dev *rt2x00dev, int status)
{
  if (status == -ENODEV || status == -ENOENT)
    return true;

  if (status == -EPROTO || status == -ETIMEDOUT) {
    rt2x00dev->num_proto_errs++;
+    printk("status %d num_proto_errs %u\n", status, rt2x00dev->num_proto_errs);
  } else
    rt2x00dev->num_proto_errs = 0;

- if (rt2x00dev->num_proto_errs > 8)
-    return true;

  return false;
}

Relevant dmesg of boot:

As the error count is very high at the start but no more errors after that i assume some part of the initialization is not supported by my device, any suggestions how to figure out what exactly? Device works fine afterwards, but i have not done any serious connection testing beyond simple transfer test, getting 3MB/s sustained transfer rate both ways which is enough for me.
