Try using a USB webcam. With that plus a USB audio device it's easy
to overwhelm the periodic TX FIFO.

If we overwhelm the periodic TX FIFO we might actually fail to
transmit ISO or INT packets at the scheduled time. That seems more
serious of a problem to try to fix than eeking out a tiny bit
performance on a USB disk. ...but of course, it all depends on what
you consider important. ;)

We could split the difference, I suppose and put half on each?
