It doesn't have to be; what matters is that's it being scheduled into
a space that fragments the bandwidth the audio device needs.

Even if the audio device only needs 3% of the bandwidth and the mouse
.0001%, the mouse drops that USB frame into low-speed compat mode and
blocks all higher speed devices from using any bandwidth during that
timing period. If the audio device requires a tiny, uninterrupted
piece of scheduling every period, it's just lost any chance of
successful scheduling.

On top of this, the Linux host schedulers are not particularly
effective about avoiding these conflicts.

[sorry for some ambiguity above; I don't remember if 1.0/1.1 drops a
full frame to low speed or just the microframe].
