ehci-hcd: Bug fix: don't set a QH's Halt bit
This patch (as1453) fixes a long-standing bug in the ehci-hcd driver. There is no need to set the Halt bit in the overlay region for an unlinked or blocked QH. Contrary to what the comment says, setting the Halt bit does not cause the QH to be patched later; that decision (made in qh_refresh()) depends only on whether the QH is currently pointing to a valid qTD. Likewise, setting the Halt bit does not prevent completions from activating the QH while it is "stopped"; they are prevented by the fact that qh_completions() temporarily changes qh->qh_state to QH_STATE_COMPLETING. On the other hand, there are circumstances in which the QH will be reactivated _without_ being patched; this happens after an URB beyond the head of the queue is unlinked. Setting the Halt bit will then cause the hardware to see the QH with both the Active and Halt bits set, an invalid combination that will prevent the queue from advancing and may even crash some controllers. Apparently the only reason this hasn't been reported before is that unlinking URBs from the middle of a running queue is quite uncommon. However Test 17, recently added to the usbtest driver, does exactly this, and it confirms the presence of the bug. In short, there is no reason to set the Halt bit for an unlinked or blocked QH, and there is a very good reason not to set it. Therefore the code that sets it is removed.
