Following your patch, it will be the maximum speed supported by the 
gadget function driver or the maximum speed supported by the UDC 
driver, whichever is lower.  That's the whole point of your patch,

Yes, it is possible to connect at a speed lower than the function 
driver's maximum speed.  The connection speed for dummy-hcd is 
controlled by a pair of module parameters: is_super_speed and

Here's what the code does, in outline form:

	switch (dum_hcd->dum->gadget.speed) {
		dum_hcd->dum->gadget.speed = USB_SPEED_FULL;

In other words, if gadget.speed isn't USB_SPEED_HIGH or USB_SPEED_LOW, 
set it to USB_SPEED_FULL.  And this is all under the case where the 
connection is USB-2, not USB-3 or higher.

How is this related to the requested change to dummy_udc_set_speed()?
