I'm using an Airspy HF+ Discovery with the Soapy driver. Whenever I turn AGC off it stops receiving samples.

On closer inspection, switching AGC off results in samples stalling for
an extended period (hundreds of milliseconds). As such, we hit the
timeout in SoapyAirspyHF::readStream() and return SOAPY_SDR_TIMEOUT

Things go wrong at this point. It takes a long time before readStream()
is called again, presumably because we returned 0 from work(). By this
time our buffers have overflown, readStream() returns SOAPY_SDR_OVERFLOW
(-2) and work() returns 0. We loop forever, continually overflowing

Fix this by looping in soapy_source_c::work() when ->readStream returns
SOAPY_SDR_OVERFLOW so that we consume the buffers straight away.
