Subject[20/26] USB: EHCI: unlink unused QHs when the controller is stopped
2.6.33-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Alan Stern <stern@rowland.harvard.edu>

commit 94ae4976e253757e9b03a44d27d41b20f1829d80 upstream.

This patch (as1458) fixes a problem affecting ultra-reliable systems:
When hardware failover of an EHCI controller occurs, the data
structures do not get released correctly. This is because the routine
responsible for removing unused QHs from the async schedule assumes
the controller is running properly (the frame counter is used in
determining how long the QH has been idle) -- but when a failover
causes the controller to be electronically disconnected from the PCI
bus, obviously it stops running.

The solution is simple: Allow scan_async() to remove a QH from the
async schedule if it has been idle for long enough _or_ if the
controller is stopped.
