Subject[patch 11/47] USB: ehci - fix timer regression
2.6.25-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us
know.

------------------
From: David Brownell <david-b@pacbell.net>
commit 056761e55c8687ddf3db14226213f2e8dc2689bc upstream

This patch fixes a regression in the EHCI driver's TIMER_IO_WATCHDOG
behavior. The patch "USB: EHCI: add separate IAA watchdog timer" changed
how that timer is handled, so that short timeouts on the remaining
timer (unfortunately, overloaded) would never be used.

This takes a more direct approach, reorganizing the code slightly to
be explicit about only the I/O watchdog role now being overridable.
It also replaces a now-obsolete comment describing older timer behavior.
