USB 2.0 specification chapter 11.17.5 says "as part of endpoint halt

In our case, a full-speed speaker (ConferenceCam) is behind a high-
speed hub (ConferenceCam Connect), sometimes once we get STALL on a
request we may continue to get STALL with the folllowing requests,
like Set_Interface.

Here we add Clear_TT_Buffer for the following Set_Interface requests
to get ACK successfully.

Originally usb_hub_clear_tt_buffer uses urb->dev->devnum as device
address while sending Clear_TT_Buffer command, but this doesn't work
for XHCI.

Why doesn't it work for xHCI? Clear-TT-Buffer is part of the USB 2.0
spec; it should work exactly the same for xHCI as for a USB-2.0 host

For other host controllers udev->devnum is the same as the address of the
usb device, chosen and set by usb core.

With xHC the controller hardware assigns the address, and won't be the same as

The Clear-TT-Buffer request sent to the hub includes the address of the LS/FS
child device in wValue field. usb_hub_clear_tt_buffer() uses udev->devnum to set the
address wValue. This won't work for devices connected to xHC
