my bad, you _do_ need this INIT_LIST_HEAD() here. When I first read, I
thought you were initializing struct usb_request list_head, and that is
not necessary ;-)

single request.

well, no. Gadget driver shouldn't depend on that. That's UDC driver's
responsability to manage that. I mean, if host sends OUT token and
there's nothing in the out queue, then UDC need to start transfer as
soon as gadget driver queues the request. If, on the other hand, gadget
driver queues packet before host has sent OUT token then you have two

1) start the transfer - most HW will wait for OUT token
2) wait for out token
