[U-Boot-Users] RFC About USB Keyboard Polling

We need to add USB Keyboard support to the 8641 HPCN board.
We currently have this working in a mode that is polled
rather than configuring any interrupts and handlers.

However, to do so, we needed to extend the usb_kbd_getc()
routine to possibly poll for interrupts as well.  So as
to avoid introducing extra code for platforms that do not
need it, we propose the following two patches.

Does this seem look a good approach to you?


PS -- The actual USB OHCI driver is a separate patch too,
        but it is board specific.  The patches below represent
        the changes to the common code.

    Allow the USB controller to use interrupt polling
    in the input waiting loop in usb_kbd_getc() instead
    of asynchronous interrupts.

    Add interrupt query function to USB core.
    Without asynchronous interrupt support, it may be
    necessary to poll for USB keyboard interrupts.
