OK.  Here's my plan: in v2 I've still included this revert and you can
see how things look.  If you hate it as much as you think you will
then let me know and I'll send a v3 that avoids to forcing and re-adds
the realtime thread to cros_ec.

One note just so you're aware: For my particular device I'm not nearly
as concerned with latency / throughput as I am concerned with
transfers not getting interrupted once started.  I've added this
explicitly in the commit message now, too.  :-)
