commit 584c5b7cf06194464240280483ee0376cdddbbae upstream.

The way the event handler works can cause it to delay
events until eventual wakeup for another event.

For example, on device detach (vhci):

- Write to sysfs detach file
-> usbip_event_add(VDEV_EVENT_DOWN)
-> wakeup()


- Event thread wakes up and passes the event to
event_handler() to process.

- It processes and clears the USBIP_EH_SHUTDOWN
flag then returns.

- The outer event loop (event_handler_loop()) calls

The processing of the second flag which is part of
VDEV_EVENT_DOWN (USBIP_EH_RESET) did not happen yet.
It is delayed until the next event.

This means the ->reset callback may not happen for
a long time (if ever), leaving the usbip port in a
weird state which prevents its reuse.

This patch changes the handler to process all flags
before waiting for another wakeup.

I have verified this change to fix a problem which
prevented reattach of a usbip device. It also helps
for socket errors which missed the RESET as well.

The delayed event processing also affects the stub
side of usbip and the error handling there.
