fusbh200 has only one port_status register with different offset,
0x30, and the position of some bits are different from EHCI.

Also, usbmode_ex, hostpc, and txfill_tuning other than configured_flag
are non-existent in fusbh200. They are used in both ehci-hcd.c and
ehci-hub.c for several times.

Thanks for your time.
