I've tested it with Windows XP SP3 host (Pentium4 2.8GHz, VIA USB 2.0 EHCI
controller) and the following script:
192.168.129.3 is an IP address of the client system (Linux on S5PV210).
Four instances of this script was running simultaneously and a Task Manager
with Network Status tab was opened. Each time when Windows runs ping command
the RNDIS transaction is performed. So this test basically checked how the
driver would act on a flood of RNDIS transactions. Each NDIS transactions
consists of the following transfers: RNDIS Command (ep0-control in), RNDIS
notification (ep3-interrupt in) and RNDIS Response (ep0-control out). All 3
parts of RNDIS transaction must be performed correctly, otherwise Windows
host locks (it is quite easy to notice this, Network Status graph stops
scrolling). The test took about 5 minutes to trigger the issue.
The flood of RNDIS transactions happens also during normal usage, some
firewalls or anti-virus scanning tools also can cause it, so it shouldn't
be considered something really unusual.
