Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH] xhci: bump the link TRB cycle detection limit.

While formatting partitions (on virtual USB drives and the nec-xhci
virtual USB controller) to EXT4, I have observed errors like these:

    kernel: sd 8:0:0:0: [sda] tag#0 FAILED Result: hostbyte=DID_ABORT
    kernel: sd 8:0:0:0: [sda] tag#0 CDB: Write(10) 2a 00 00 66 49 86
    00 08 00 00
    kernel: blk_update_request: I/O error, dev sda, sector 6703494
    kernel: Buffer I/O error on dev dm-0, logical block 1573254, lost
    async page write

Raising TRB_LINK_LIMIT fixes the limit, but the new value was
admittedly arbitrarily chosen.

Regarding cycle detection in general, allowing at most 4 levels of
links seems pretty low. This bump should be safe: a high number only
means that we get a performance hit when encountering cycles but then
we should have a fatal error any way; a low number instead means that
we'll incorrectly identify cycles and abort operations that otherwise
would succeed, like in the case above.
