Oh, now I get what you're saying!

A) You've got dwc2_release_channel() -> dwc2_deactivate_qh() ->
dwc2_hcd_qh_deactivate()
...and always in that case we'll do a select / queue, so we don't need it there.

B) You've got dwc2_hcd_urb_dequeue() -> dwc2_hcd_qh_deactivate()

...but why don't we need it for dwc2_hcd_urb_dequeue()? Yes, you're
not continuing a split so timing isn't quite as urgent, but you still
might have an INT or ISOC packet that's scheduled with an interval of
1. We still might want to schedule right away if there are remaining
QTDs, right?
