Currently I'm also not sure. So I want it pending for my future work.

Actually, the failure of operation to CSR_CHANNELS_AVAILABLE_HI appears 
in stopping streams. When starting streams, retries in 
manage_channels()/manage_bandwidth() works fine. So users can use their 
devices as usual.

The disadvantages may appears when the driver handles this failure many 
times. Then users will see this message 'isochronous resources exhausted'.

I think the way to recover this state is just to reboot the system. But 
this state doesn't bring sudden hangup to system. Users can observer 
what happened.

With trade-off of the fact that there is no driver for these devices in 
both of user-land/kernel-land, I want to include these patches.
