I don't know any details about the genesys driver/backend
but I guess it is not the genesys backend itself that fails
but it fails because of a lower level error during device I/O.

I.e. I guess it fails somewhere in the various USB layers
like libusb or kernel USB drivers/modules or USB hardware
cf. "Basics" and "USB" at

Accordingly I would focus more on USB related debug messages
as described in "Trouble-Shooting (Debugging)" at
