USB: EHCI: reorganize isochronous scheduler routine
This patch (as1408) rearranges the scheduling code in ehci-hcd, partly to improve its structure, but mainly to change the way it works. Whether or not a transfer exceeds the hardware schedule length will now be determined by looking at the last frame the transfer would use, instead of the first available frame following the end of the transfer. The benefit of this change is that it allows the driver to accept valid URBs which would otherwise be rejected. For example, suppose the schedule length is 1024 frames, the endpoint period is 256 frames, and a four-packet URB is submitted. The four transfers would occupy slots that are 0, 256, 512, and 768 frames past the current frame (plus an extra slop factor). These don't exceed the 1024-frame limit, so the URB should be accepted. But the current code notices that the next available slot would be 1024 frames (plus slop) in the future, which is beyond the limit, and so the URB is rejected unnecessarily.
