After further testing (off-list), it turns out that 32 frames/period
works okay with three periods/buffer instead of two. Not surprising
really; with two periods you get only two URBs, and whenever one of
them completes, the other isn't long enough to exceed the scheduling
In summary, it now appears that the most recent patch works better than
the current driver.

Yes, please, more testing is needed. I intend to submit the patch
when the current merge period ends.
