Yes, will fix it in next version.

Got it. Thanks.

Sorry, not quite get your point here? Actually I have discussed with Soc design guys
and Felipe, it seems to be DWC3 native behavior rather than SoC specific issue.

I think there could be 2 reasons why we got no report for a long time till now:
1. Most USB devices are not so sensitive to this VBUS glitch, they would works fine.
2. A proper VBUS pump circuit design can successfully filter this glitch out. I have
confirmed this with scope, which means some platforms might resolve issue in
this way already (some might not, of cause).

However, since this is not a only solution (can fix it in HW way), I prefer to let it
controlled by property in DTS node for those questionable board already existing
in market.
