Subject: [PATCH v4 6/6] USB: forbid memory allocation with I/O during bus reset

If one storage interface or usb network interface(iSCSI case)
exists in current configuration, memory allocation with
GFP_KERNEL during usb_device_reset() might trigger I/O transfer
on the storage interface itself and cause deadlock because
the 'us->dev_mutex' is held in .pre_reset() and the storage
interface can't do I/O transfer when the reset is triggered
by other interface, or the error handling can't be completed
if the reset is triggered by the storage itself(error handling path).
