libpayload: usb: Refactor USB enumeration to fix SuperSpeed devices

This patch represents a major overhaul of the USB enumeration code in
order to make it cleaner and much more robust to weird or malicious
devices. The main improvement is that it correctly parses the USB
descriptors even if there are unknown descriptors interspersed within,
which is perfectly legal and in particular present on all SuperSpeed
devices (due to the SuperSpeed Endpoint Companion Descriptor).

In addition, it gets rid of the really whacky and special cased
get_descriptor() function, which would read every descriptor twice
whether it made sense or not. The new code makes the callers allocate
descriptor memory and only read stuff twice when it's really necessary
(i.e. the device and configuration descriptors).

Finally, it also moves some more responsibilities into the
controller-specific set_address() function in order to make sure things
are initialized at the same stage for all controllers. In the new model
it initializes the device entry (which zeroes the endpoint array), sets
up endpoint 0 (including MPS), sets the device address and finally
returns the whole usbdev_t structure with that address correctly set.

Note that this should make SuperSpeed devices work, but SuperSpeed hubs
are a wholly different story and would require a custom hub driver
(since the hub descriptor and port status formats are different for USB
3.0 ports, and the whole issue about the same hub showing up as two
different devices on two different ports might present additional
challenges). The stack currently just issues a warning and refuses to
initialize this part of the hub, which means that 3.0 devices connected
through a 3.0 hub may not work correctly.
