[PATCH] Revert "usb: core: remove local_irq_save() around ->complete() handler"




This reverts commit ed194d1367698a0872a2b75bbe06b3932ce9df3a.

In contrast to the original patch description, apparently not all handlers
were audited properly. E.g. my RT5370 based USB WIFI adapter (driver in
drivers/net/wireless/ralink/rt2x00) hangs after a while under heavy load.
This revert fixes this.

Also revert the follow-up patch d6142b91e9cc249b3aa22c90fade67e2e2d52cdb
("usb: core: remove flags variable in __usb_hcd_giveback_urb()"), since now
we need the flags variable again.
