I see only a devm_request_irq() so no force-threading here. Booting with
threadirqs would not lead to the problem since commit
   81e2073c175b8 ("genirq: Disable interrupts for force threaded handlers")

If it is really a timing issue in the function as you describe below
then disabling interrupts would help and it is indeed an RT only issue.

So you read OP_ENDPTSETUPSTAT, it is 0, all good.
You write OP_ENDPTPRIME, wait for it to be cleared.
Then you read OP_ENDPTSETUPSTAT again and if it is 0, all good.

And the TWD interrupt could delay say the second read would read 1 and
it is invalidated. Which looks odd.
However, it is "okay" if the TWD interrupt happens after the second
read? Even if the host sends a setup packet, nothing breaks? 
Do you have numbers on how long irq-off section is here? It seems to
depend on how long the HW needs to clear the OP_ENDPTPRIME bits.
