USB: fix interrupt disabling for HCDs with shared interrupt handlers

USB: fix interrupt disabling for HCDs with shared interrupt handlers

As has been discussed several times on LKML, IRQF_SHARED | IRQF_DISABLED
doesn't work reliably, i.e. a shared interrupt handler CAN'T be certain to
be called with interrupts disabled. Most USB HCD handlers use IRQF_DISABLED
and therefore havoc can break out if they share their interrupt with a
handler that doesn't use it.

On my test machine the yenta_socket interrupt handler (no IRQF_DISABLED)
was registered before ehci_hcd and one uhci_hcd instance. Therefore all
usb_hcd_irq() invocations for ehci_hcd and for one uhci_hcd instance
happened with interrupts enabled. That led to random lockups as USB core
HCD functions that acquire the same spinlock could be called twice
from interrupt handlers.

This patch updates usb_hcd_irq() to always disable/restore interrupts.
usb_add_hcd() will silently remove any IRQF_DISABLED requested from HCD code.
