[RFC][PATCH] dwc3: gadget: Fix losing list items in dwc3_gadget_ep_cleanup_completed_requests()

From: John Stultz
Date: Mon Aug 09 2021 - 18:32:08 EST

In commit d25d85061bd8 ("usb: dwc3: gadget: Use
list_replace_init() before traversing lists"), a local list_head
was introduced to process the started_list items to avoid races.

However, in dwc3_gadget_ep_cleanup_completed_requests() if
dwc3_gadget_ep_cleanup_completed_request() fails, we break early,
causing the items on the local list_head to be lost.

This issue showed up as problems on the db845c/RB3 board, where
adb connetions would fail, showing the device as "offline".

This patch tries to fix the issue by if we are returning early
we splice in the local list head back into the started_list
and return (avoiding an infinite loop, as the started_list is
now non-null).

Not sure if this is fully correct, but seems to work for me so I
wanted to share for feedback.
