Just to avoid confusion - that's a similar patch applied to a different
driver. The ISP1760 HCD driver works fine with my patch (transfer_buffer
never seems to be NULL with latest mainline). I can't comment on the
ehci-q.c driver (it looks like it has some support for DMA while my
patch only applies to PIO drivers where transfer_buffer should be set).
