3.5.7.9 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Johan Hovold <jhovold@gmail.com>

commit 618aa1068df29c37a58045fe940f9106664153fd upstream.

Remove bogus disconnect test introduced by 95bef012e ("USB: more serial
drivers writing after disconnect") which prevented queued data from
being freed on disconnect.

The possible IO it was supposed to prevent is long gone.
