Data underrun means the controller received less data that it asked
for in a transfer.  This is not really an error in many situations;
try modifying the dc2xx driver to accept it.

It's not your card, its all controllers and a general "all slightly

this with a move to a new cleaner device <-> usb stack/hcd interface.
