Please update to a recent barebox. The fastboot commands now run in a
workqueue which itself only runs when we are outside any critical pathes
in barebox.
Particularly fastboot commands will only execute when you called
command_slice_release() beforehand. You'll have to call
command_slice_acquire() before entering any critical pathes like probing
for USB devices.
