[RESEND][PATCH 1/3] usb_kbd: succeed even if no interrupt is pending

After the initial configuration some USB keyboard+mouse devices never
return any kind of event on the interrupt line.  In particular, the
device identified by "Cypress Cypress USB Keyboard / PS2 Mouse as
never returns a data packet until the first external input event.

I found this was also true with some newer model Dell keyboards.

When the device is plugged into a xhci controller there is also no
point in waiting 5 seconds for a device that is never going to present
data, so the call to the interrupt service was changed to a
nonblocking operation for the controllers that support this.

With the patch applied, the rpi3 and rpi4 work well with the more
complex keyboard devices.
