It's not clear that this should be the deciding factor. That is, does usb_ep_disable() need to wait until all the endpoint's outstanding transfers have been completed before it returns?

The usual times for calling usb_ep_disable() is when the gadget driver processes an altsetting or configuration change, or a reset or disconnect. The notifications for these things happen in interrupt context, so it doesn't seem reasonable to require that endpoints be disabled in process context. f_mass_storage has its own worker thread. Mainly for other reasons, but it can also use the thread to handle these events. But it doesn't seem right to require all gadget drivers to do the same thing. There is still an open question about how a gadget driver can change altsettings, though. A particular endpoint might be bulk in one altsetting and isochronous in another, for example. I don't see how we can change the endpoint's characteristics without being allowed to sleep.
