Thanks for spending your time in reviewing this patch. The reason for adding the
timer is when streams are enabled there could be chances for the host and gadget
controller to become out of sync, the gadget may wait for the host to issue prime
transaction and the host may wait for the gadget to issue ERDY. To avoid such a
potential deadlock conditions, timeout needs to be implemented in dwc3 driver.
After timeout occurs, gadget will first stop transfer and restart the transfer again.
This issue is mentioned in databook 2.90A section 9.5.2. I am not aware of how
other controllers are handling the streams, but since this issue looks more like a
dwc3 specific issue, I think it would be more convincing to add the timer in dwc3
gadget driver rather than adding in udc framework. Also we are stopping the timer
when a valid StreamEvnt is found, which would be difficult to handle if the timer is
moved into udc. Please help me by correcting , if I am missing something or my
understanding is wrong.

Thanks,
Anurag Kumar Vulisha
