I've been thinking about this some more. The reason I don't really like this patch is that
this loop is nested and is run in interrupt context holding a spinlock. The idea here is
to check only the head of the queue and handle only the qtds that are ready to be handled,
instead of interating though the whole queue on every interrupt.

What about handling this on urb dequeueing instead, by moving the qtds belonging to the
dequeued urb to the front of the queue?
