I'll add the module names.

I'd like the option to build an XHCI only system by not enabling
USB_EHCI_HCD and USB_OHCI_HCD.

For this explaination, I'm going to call our EHCI and OHCI controllers EOHCI.
We have some SoC's that have an XHCI controller and an EOHCI
controller on the same  port, where the XHCI controller handles the
3.0 devices and the EOHCI handles the <= 2.0 devices. If the EOHCI
controller comes up before the XHCI controller, any 3.0 devices
installed on the port will be seen as a 2.0 device. Once the 3.0
controller comes up, most 3.0 USB devices will switch to 3.0, but this
seems to cause problems on some USB devices.
In the past, this wasn't a problem because we had custom XHCI, EHCI
and OHCI drivers that I could order any way necessary. Now that the
standard platform XHCI and OHCI drivers are being used this becomes a
problem.

Thanks for the review
