It looks like you applied wrong patch. I meant patch titled "drivers:
usb: dwc2: remove 'force' parameter from kill_all_requests()" is the
latest and complete fix. The patch you have applied named "usb: dwc2:
gadget: kill requests with 'force' in s3c_hsotg_udc_stop()" do not solve
problem completely without changes in udc-core, which we concluded are
not acceptable.

Sorry for the mess. I understand that titles of both patches are
confusing similar.
