I'm unfortunately not familiar with BeagleBone Black, and these errors 
look pretty odd. Is there anything more you can say about why the device 
would fail to set the buffer and period times, but still claim "Success"?

If possible, it may help to try updating to 1.16 or the latest Git 
version to see if it still occurs.
