There are several issues with this patch.
1) Your frame elapsed time check is not based on interval but statically
DWC3_EVENT_PRAM_SOFFN / 2. That's about 1 second. So it doesn't account
for isoc transfers with large service interval of 1 sec or more.
2) This function __dwc3_gadget_target_frame_elapsed() should have
comments for what it does. The name implies that this function checks
for eframe > cframe, and not eframe > cframe + 1s.
3) If this check fails, then it will do DWC3_ALIGN_FRAME() at least
twice. The isoc transfer will start 1 more interval into the future than
it needs to.

Also, I think the role of this check should be from the controller as it
has more information and its own logic to decide if the selected future
uframe has elapsed.

BR,
Thinh
