All bets are off because who knows what preempt is doing to the state
machines and in PIO you are dead.

You can not delay transaction of data between interrupts w/o having the
transport help out. But the preempt don't get it.

If you push your request size down to 8k or to a page you preempt problems
will go away, only because granularity of requests. And the price is
performance goes in the tank. But this is preempt so who cares.
