So the device seems incorrectly advertising as if it were supporting
UAC3 -- assuming the device is still not UAC3-capable.

IOW, it's a buggy firmware. We need some blacklisting, or revert the
commit for now, unless any real UAC3 device comes up to the market.

IIRC an UAC3-capable device is required to expose a backwards-compatible configuration (either UAC1 or UAC2). Maybe an additional test can be done to harden the detection so that UAC3 is only chosen if indeed a second audio configuration is present as well.

I also vaguely recall there was talk about adding information in the BOS descriptor, but I don't know if this was ever published.
