Probably you have little bit different code than current community
version (depends how your PM works).

This is possible when we write:
dwc3_writel(dwc->regs, DWC3_GEVNTCOUNT(0), 0);
And after that
dwc3_writel(dwc->regs, DWC3_GEVNTCOUNT(0), 4);

After that we will get 0xFFFC (-4).

Possible races:
1) dwc3_event_buffers_setup/dwc3_event_buffers_cleanup - write 0
2) dwc3_thread - write 4

While [1] could be called in PM work or UM context (init in Android
case) spin_lock_irqsave() will only disable local irqs and still we
could get IRQ on different core, next update evt->count and run
thread...

So, seems your patch will solve this.

I am not sure this problem could be also visible in community current version.

Anyway, thanks for handling this.
