Someone pointed me in priv that applying a change at DWC2 BRCM profile to
enable uframe_sched might help.

So, I wrote this patch:
https://git.linuxtv.org/mchehab/experimental.git/commit/?h=v4.15%2bmedia%2bdwc2&id=19abf0026b7bf1bd44aa9d2add9f958935760ded

And applied on the top of this branch:
https://git.linuxtv.org/mchehab/experimental.git/log/?h=v4.15%2bmedia%2bdwc2

It is based on Kernel 4.15 vanilla. I applied:
- all media -next patches that will be sent to Kernel 4.16-rc1;
- DWC2 patches submitted by Gregor at linux-usb ML;
- Linus softirq test patch:
https://git.linuxtv.org/mchehab/experimental.git/commit/?h=v4.15%2bmedia%2bdwc2&id=ccf833fd4a5b99c3d3cf2c09c065670f74a230a7
- A DT patch that enables VCIQ (needed by some GPU drivers):
https://git.linuxtv.org/mchehab/experimental.git/commit/?h=v4.15%2bmedia%2bdwc2&id=fd4e9ca6f41d35b6234c30fa29937141e0c09570
- a few debug patches like this one:
https://git.linuxtv.org/mchehab/experimental.git/commit/?h=v4.15%2bmedia%2bdwc2&id=f50669c18394f5b5674630e2ebf78a06b023626f

I didn't notice any difference. The dwc2 driver is still broken for
ISOCH transfers:
