The most important issue

The following is a list of side effects that must not occur during USB interoperability testing. This is a list of the most frequent side effects, and is not meant to be a complete list. Any side effect in addition to those on this list must be resolved prior to production release of the DUT.

Kernel oopses and panics

Core dumps, kernel oopses and kernel panics are never acceptable. Host controller drivers, device drivers and applications should handle all situations gracefully, informing the end-user of any issues that occur with either a device or limited resources.
