Actually, I wanted to check whether the device marks the inbound
(capture) endpoint as isochronous with implicit data feedback usage.
Which it doesn't either.

I wonder if we can always fall back to implicit feedback in case a
playback substream does not have a syncpipe and does not have its
fill_max bit set.

Felix, can you add a

  printk(KERN_WARNING "%s() is_playback %d fill_max %d syncpipe %d\n",
  	 __func__, is_playback, subs->fill_max, subs->syncpipe);

at the end of set_format() in pcm.c and send us the output?

I have an untested patch ready which should add support for implicit
feedback, but I'm uncertain about the condition when to activate this
