Fixes & Enhancements

"Mach Xtreme MXUB3MFX" freeze when they received the Hot-Reset from the host.
From V2.0.30.0, we added recovery processes.
- The following issues were fixed.
1. There is a possibility that the bluescreen occurs when S3/S4 & resume is running.

2. When Users are using the USB 3.0 Host Controller Utility(nusb3utl.exe) and pushed [F1]key of the keyboard, the blank pop-up is shown.

3. When Users are using USB 3.0 Host Controller Utility(nusb3utl.exe) and pushed [F4]key ,[BackSpace]key or [Enter]key of the keyboard,the error message is shown.
