What I meant was that the ioctl call *eventually* ends up in some 
driver, be it the usbdevfs driver or some other driver.

I'm still thinking it's driver problem, but maybe I'm missing something. 
  I couldn't find the string IOCTL_USB_CLAIMINTF in my kernel tree (or 
anything beginning with IOCTL_USB for that matter), but whereever that 
is handled is where I'd add a printout to see how far in the call chain 
you described it gets.  (Adding printouts in glibc and rebuilding it is 
doable, but more difficult.  If you want to do that, you can check the 
install-cris-tools script that you run when installing cris-dist from 
source on how to do it.)
