I just wasn't defined up to now (to be precise: transfer_flags was just
copied from the related URB struct member in the frontend, so the
interface was based on some Linux kernel internals, and the qemu backend
used a literal "1" for testing the flag).

This is just a part of the pvusb interface. So it should be defined in
the appropriate header file.

Regarding prefix: I can do this, but in this case I'd prefer to add the
prefix to all definitions in the header. As there are currently no
in-tree users of this header, the risk would still be zero. :-)
