I totally forgot about this until another bluez update happened
and the CPU hog came back.

I had another look at this and I suppose the problem is caused by
USBFS_IOCTL_DISCONNECT being called for every bind/unbind event.
So I think this patch is still the right way to go.

I did find a few more bugs in hid2hci but those don't actually make
any real difference here. I'll send separate patches for those anyway.
