USB: UHCI: acquire spinlock before calling start_rh()

This patch (as1392) fixes a bug in uhci-hcd: The start_rh() routine is
supposed to be called with the private spinlock held.  If an IRQ comes
in at just the wrong time, the driver will think the controller has
died when in fact it simply hasn't start yet.

The patch also addresses some issues that may prevent an URB from
being unlinked after the controller has stopped.  This is an abnormal
occurrence (ordinarily the controller stops only when the entire bus
is suspended and hence there are no active URBs), so the pathways
haven't gotten much testing.  These two changes may be a little more
than is strictly necessary, but clearly they won't hurt.
