To summarize some off-list exchange of debug logs, it looks like this
issue can be worked around by both applying the "msleep(20)" patch and
by increasing USB_TIME_SIGATT to 500.

I think making a new config file (eg, "etc/usb-time-sigatt") to allow
USB_TIME_SIGATT to be configured without patching the code would make
sense.  I'll send a patch.

I don't have a good solution for the msleep() issue right now.
