Nothing that comes out immediately, i was reviewing the code, here is
the call chain:

        ->xhci_poll_event() (there is a 5sec timeout, which obviously
                             its not hitting).

                             Either this is taking around 700msec per
                             call, which looks very wierd.

Will spend some more time and debug.
