    Just found a recursive locking bug:

    > +static int reset_queues(struct qe_udc *udc)
    > +{

    Note: this function is called from the IRQ, the IRQ handler
    grabs udc->lock spinlock..

    In the disconnect(), g_ether driver will immediately call
    qe_ep_disable() function which will try to grab &udc->lock
    spinlock once again..

    Not sure how to fix this properly... :-/

    p.s. the same bug exists in omap_udc.c, pxa27x_udc.c and probably
    other drivers as well... The only reason why it does not exploit
    in most cases is that the spin_lock_irqsave for !SMP case turns
    into simple local_irq_save().
