I don't see anything odd with your read function, is it just timing out?

Have you tried doing read/writes from userspace with libusb and that
works correctly?

Oh, also your ioctl types need to be better specified than "int" as that
doesn't make much sense with 64bit kernels and a 32bit userspace. You
need to use types like __u32 in order to make sure that works correctly
in all situations.
