It is a very old thread but it seems I found root cause of this problem
and I think that it can be important to inform about my findings. I
added comments below.

I've been fighting with exactly this problem for past month.

I did not check networking yet but eliminated -92 errors for keyboard
and mouse.

They seemed to be sent but during those "sends" device was not properly
informed about memory address for use for dma.

On rpi3 (and others) there is a difference between bus addresses and
physical addresses. In [1] I made a "brutal" fix working for
rpi3. It is definitely not the final one as it is not just for rpi.

During my attempts I ported this new driver and it did not help so
probably fixing dma can help on previous versions of the driver too.

Alexander, I don't know if you are still interested in this but if you
check if my findings help I would definitely like to know about this.
