Did you make sure that the rtl-sdr programs are in fact also using
the new libraries, as opposed to what is installed by CentOS which
is what will be used by default, when running them?

Only to use the latest kernel code.

If you see the problem with the latest kernel (from Linus' git - the
latest packaged by CentOS is irrelevant) and using code from by way of e.g. LD_LIBRARY_PATH then I would
be interested in seeing a libusb debug log. See for a copypaste-able instruction on how
to generate one. Thanks!
