Normally we start a command timeout timer each time we start
servicing a new command, this gives each command 5 seconds time
to finish. If it times out we stop the command ring and abort the

The Stop endpoint command has an additinal separate timeout timer
that is started when the stop endpoint command is queued to the ring,
not when host starts to service the command.

I see that we could end up in a situation where one device is being
address (address device command), and a URB is being canceled for
another device almost at the same time (stop endpoint command queued
right after address device command).

If the address device commands times out then the host doesn't have
enough time to service the stop endpoint command
before the stop endpoint timeout timer triggers.

This needs to be fixed, but disabling the entire slot just because
URB is being canceled for a LS/FS device is not the right way to go.
