I think you are on the right track but you should probably take the kernel
lock around the start_input_transfer() call in open_in_jack(), instead of
during the function, since it is called from other paths (eg in_intr) with
the kernel lock held?

I don't know if that is because the kernel lock is now taken multiple
times as per your patch (or maybe that is allowed but I didn't think so in

or it could be that this call to usbd_abort_pipe() occurs without the
kernel lock held.. should it be at that point?

Yes, there has been some work with MP locking in the USB and audio
subsystems committed recently
