  Cc: Fabio M. De Francesco

Replace usb_control_msg() with the new usb_control_msg_recv() and
usb_control_msg_send() API of USB Core.

This patch is an RFC for different reasons:

1) I'm not sure if it is needed: while Greg Kroah-Hartman suggested to 
use the new API in a message to a thread that was about a series of patches
submitted by Pavel Skripkin (who decided to not use it), I cannot explain 
if and why the driver would benefit from this patch.
2) I have doubts about the sematic of the API I use here, so I'd like to
know whether or not I'm using them properly.
3) At the moment I cannot test the driver because I don't have my device
with me.
4) This patch could probably lead to a slight change in some lines of
Pavel's series (for sure in usb_read*()).

I'd like to hear from the Maintainers and other interested people if this
patch is worth to be considered and, in this case, if there are suggestions
for the purpose to improve it.

I think, we can pass REALTEK_USB_VENQT_{READ,WRITE} directly as 
requesttype argument and get rid of u8 reqtype. + we can define these 
macros:

#define
usbctrl_vendor_read(...)   usbctrl_vendorreq(...,REALTEK_USB_VENQT_READ)


#define
usbctrl_vendor_write()    usbctrl_vendorreq(...,REALTEK_USB_VENQT_WRITE)


This will make code more nice, IMO  :)

I guess, this memcpy is needed, since we want to send data from pdata

		^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

And this memset becomes useless, since usb_control_msg_recv cannot 
receive only part of the message

Dear Pavel,

I agree in full: nicer and cleaner :)

I'll do that, but please notice that I will also need to change the code of the three 
usb_read*() for calling usbctrl_vendor_read(). Furthermore, "else res = 0;" becomes
unnecessary. Please take these changes into account when you'll send them again
as "regular" patches.

Actually I don't see any oddities in the format of your message :)

Oh, dear! How could I have missed that? Two alternatives: either because of working 
during bedtime, or I'm definitely losing my mind... :(

Thanks for you review, I really appreciate it.

Regards,

Fabio

P.S.: As I wrote, I have not my ASUS N10 Nano with me and I won't have the opportunity
to test this as well as any other patch until the end of August. I hope to not break anything.
If somebody has time to test the final patch that I'm going to submit, I'd really appreciate it.

I didn't notice it at all. Obviously, I'll remove it.

It depends on which patch will go in first.

There are a lot of upcoming clean ups, so I am waiting for merging my 
series with random clean ups :) A lot of fun...

I biggest hope is that my series will go in before camel-case clean ups, 
because rewriting this for the 3rd time will kill my mind...

Dear Fabio,

Code is looking good - happy to test the final patch here by all means.

I have reconsidered the tip above and, while I appreciate your suggestion, I think it's 
not so necessary to use the macros only to get rid of "u8 reqtype".  I finally got rid of 
that variable by passing the request types explicitly to usb_control_msg_recv/send().

A lot of fun... Sure? :)

 In this case, I wouldn't want to be in your place :)

Thanks again very much for your review,
