The user space can pass multiple EPs to allocate streams for. This is
aligned with the HCD API which expects an array of EPs and number of
streams to allocate. Please have a look in xhci.c.

I suggest to pass a bitmap from user space to represent the list of EPs.
An alternative is to pass an array, but I didn't find any real advantage
for this.
