[PATCH] usb: don't offload isochronous urb completions to ksoftirq




I have a single-core machine with usb2 soundcard. When I increase mplayer
priority (to real-time or high non-realtime priority), the sound is
stuttering. The reason for the stuttering is that mplayer at high priority
preempts the softirq thread, preventing URBs from being completed. It was
caused by the patch 428aac8a81058 that offloads URB completion to softirq.

This patch prevents offloading isochronous URBs to softirq to fix the
stuttering.

Fixes: c04ee4b1136e ("Revert "Revert "USB: EHCI: support running URB giveback in tasklet context""")
