[alsa-devel] ALSA: snd-usb-usx2y: remove bogus frame checks

I did some more testing on my US122:

I used my patch (see below) and it worked (with default nrpack=4), but I
got "should not be here with counts=42" errors, then after some time the
kernel crashed, but I couldn't copy the trace.

Then I set nrpack=1 and I got no "should not be here..." and it was more
stable, no crash. I only checked playback, not recording, nor MIDI, with
aplay I played some songs for about one hour...

I hope this can be useful. But I think there are other bugs in this
