I don't think there is any requirement for interrupts to be enabled
when usb_ep_disable() runs. At least, a quick check shows that both
net2280 and dummy-hcd use spin_lock_irqsave() rather than spin_lock()
in their disable routines.

Holding locks is a different story. It should be okay for a gadget
driver to hold one of its own locks when disabling an endpoint (which
means that the gadget's disable routine shouldn't wait for a concurrent
giveback to finish), but we might want to avoid holding a lock in the
composite core. Although even that might be okay -- I can't think of
any reason why a udc driver would need to call back into the composite
core while disabling an endpoint. It should be a pretty self-contained
