I put in some printouts and I finally did manage to find a place where
we needed to queue things up in dwc2_hcd_urb_dequeue().  I saw:

314.587916: QH=d9535340 next(0) fn=2a52, sch=2a51=>2a52 (+1) miss=0
314.588040: QH=d9535340 next(0) fn=2a53, sch=2a52=>2a53 (+1) miss=0
314.588162: QH=d9535340 next(0) fn=2a54, sch=2a53=>2a54 (+1) miss=0
314.588299: QH=d9535340 next(0) fn=2a55, sch=2a54=>2a55 (+1) miss=0
314.588304: QH=d9535340 queue in dwc2_hcd_urb_dequeue
314.588363: QH=d9535340 next(0) fn=2a55, sch=2a55=>2a56 (+1) miss=0
314.588413: dwc2_handle_hcd_intr: ff540000.usb: SCH: QH=e5cea380 ready
fn=2a56, nxt=2a56
314.588414: dwc2_handle_hcd_intr: ff540000.usb: SCH: QH=e73ccc40 ready
fn=2a56, nxt=2a56
314.588415: dwc2_handle_hcd_intr: ff540000.usb: SCH: QH=e5cea8c0 ready
fn=2a56, nxt=2a56

It's not something that's terribly common.  It's fine to just drop
this patch, or I can replace it with
