it's EHCI, but the driver needs 14 seconds to load everything with
freebsd (ok there's a lot to send) but the other systems are all way
faster with that (7 seconds max for initialising 4 chipsets). I
somewhat think that this issue also has to do with the bulk latency
killing the data transfer.
Maybe the actual send is quick but maybe there's some additional
libusb20 - usb userspace interface - usb - roundtrip problem that
causes this high latency.
