Yes, I think so. Sadly, there's no way to query whether a TT is jammed or
not. So my heuristic is that when a clear-stall transaction fails with a
timeout, and it's to a full-speed device with a high-speed hub, to reset the
TT. Resetting the TT will cause every other device using it to require
require a clear-stall sequence, but that's not a big problem.
We see hub wedging problems multiple times per hour. because this system has
a long cable from the host to hub, and there are frequent static discharges
nearby. I've been testing with a static discharge simulator that hits the
cables with nanosecond kilovolt pulses and it's made it much easier to
reproduce the problems. So I can probably propose a set of patches in the
next week or so.
