Try this patch and see what happens:
--- umcs.c (revision 255492)
+++ umcs.c (local)
@@ -230,6 +230,7 @@
.bufsize = 0, /* use wMaxPacketSize */
.callback = &umcs7840_intr_callback,
.if_index = 0,
+ .interval = 20, /* ms */
BTW: I see that the umcs driver shouldn't do synchronous control
transfers from the USB interrupt transfer callback. This should be
postponed into some worker thread, for example the USB explore thread.
See USB audio driver for an example.
