If you are using 4.4 or older, then its definetly due to bad kernel driv=

I had the same problem with the ALI USB chipset, i opened a bug, and
it was fixed in 5.0-C some months ago, which came down to 4.5-R.

The bug was generic and affected many chipsets, it even happened
on my IBM ThinkPad 600E during high traffic uploads.

Ofcourse it could be due to both the buggy driver and a bad chipset, so
fixing the driver won't help you.
