At the moment, most of the commands chain 3 descriptors:
1 - class + command
2 - command specific
3 - ack

We could merge 1 and 2 into a single one, both are read only for the device, so I take it back, it won't need a bigger ring.
But it will need 2 descriptors at least(1 read only for the device and 1 write only for the device), so we still need to fail probe sometimes.
