Hrm, right. memcpy will break if we take a channel which was used by
omap_udc at some point as LCH_P is not capable of dealing with it.

With this patch it should be fine as we configure the LCH_CTRL to P or
2D depending on the transfer type (slave vs non-slave).
But, we might just set the lch to 2D regardless as it works for slave
and memcpy channels fine.
