Subject[PATCH 2/3 v2] fb: udlfb: fix hang at disconnect
Date
When a device was disconnected the driver may hang at waiting for urbs it never
will get. Fix this by using a timeout while waiting for the used semaphore.

There is still a memory leak if a timeout happens, but at least the driver
now continues his disconnect routine.
