USB: EHCI cpufreq fix

EHCI controllers that don't cache enough microframes can get MMF errors
when CPU frequency changes occur between the start and completion of
split interrupt transactions, due to delays in reading main memory
(caused by CPU cache snoop delays).

This patch adds a cpufreq notifier to the EHCI driver that will
inactivate split interrupt transactions during frequency transitions.
It was tested on Intel ICH7 and Serverworks/Broadcom HT1000 EHCI

As expected my system only hangs when cpufreq, powernow-k8 and ehci modules
are loaded, and some transition should occur.
(Simulated by using userspace governour and changing freq manually)

The corresponding EHCI Controller is:

00:10.4 USB Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. USB 2.0 (rev 86) (prog-if 20
Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. A7V600/K8V-X/A8V Deluxe motherboard

I could not get my hands on any output while the hang occurs, seems like the
CPU is really bad locked.
