Subject: [PATCH] staging: emxx_udc: Fix incorrectly defined global

The global gpio_desc pointer and int were defined in the header,
instead put the definitions in the translation unit and add an extern
declaration for consumers of the header (currently only one, which is
perhaps why the linker didn't complain about symbol collisions).

This fixes sparse related warnings for this driver:
drivers/staging/emxx_udc/emxx_udc.c: note: in included file:
drivers/staging/emxx_udc/emxx_udc.h:23:18: warning: symbol 'vbus_gpio' was not declared. Should it be static?
drivers/staging/emxx_udc/emxx_udc.h:24:5: warning: symbol 'vbus_irq' was not declared. Should it be static?
