	Yes, that's my understanding of the driver code.  What I'm
trying to understand is the trigger for setting connect=1.  See, all of
the other configfs steps you outlined make sense to me as "part of the
gadget's internal state".  While I don't know what C1 and F1 are (I
assume G1 is Gadget1), I don't know that it matters.
	What changes the state to "active"?  That is, what triggers
setting connect=1?  Is it just part of the flow of power-up, or is there
some separation between "setting myself up" and "seeing that a host
wants to talk to me"?
