Subject: [PATCH] USB: gadget: udc: atmel: fix possible oops when unloading module

Executing the 'insmod g_hid.ko', then executing the
'rmmod g_hid.ko', the NULL pointer oops will be triggered.

When unloading the module 'g_hid.ko', the urb request will be
dequeued and the completion routine will be excuted. If no urb
packet, the urb request will not be added to the endpoint queue
and the completion routine pointer in urb request is NULL.
Accessing to the NULL function pointer will cause the oops issue.
Add the code to check the urb request is in the endpoint queue
or not.If the urb request is not in the endpoint queue, a negative
error code will be returned.

This bug was introduced since the file 'atmel_usba_udc.c' was
initialized. Fixes: 914a3f3b3754 (USB: add atmel_usba_udc driver)
Cc: # always been there...

oops dump log is shown in the following.
Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual
address 00000000
pgd = dedf0000
[00000000] *pgd=3ede5831, *pte=00000000, *ppte=00000000
