It contains the value 1, but I'm not able to change it. Yes, I was root.

# cat /sys/bus/usb-serial/devices/ttyUSB0/latency_timer
# echo 16 > /sys/bus/usb-serial/devices/ttyUSB0/latency_timer
# cat /sys/bus/usb-serial/devices/ttyUSB0/latency_timer

Since nothing has changed, downloading in subsurface is just as
unsuccessful as before. If I unplug the cable, the file disappears,
along with the entire ttyUSB0 directory.

I'm lost as to how I can make the value stick. Perhaps a boot option?
Maybe kernel config?

I should have time to try this tonight.
