Subject: [PATCH v1] usb: core: hub: improve port over-current alert msg

At the moment the port over-current message is
displayed only if the over-current condition is permanent.

But in case of permanent short-circuit or
over-current, some USB power-distribution switches
(such as the TPS20xx, etc.), after the over-current
detection and the consequent shutdown, return
in the normal state.

So, in these cases, the over-current error message
never appears.

To overcome this problem, the "over-current condition"
message is displayed even after some over-current events.
