Subject: [PATCH v3 1/2] usb: dwc3: Trigger a GCTL soft reset when switching modes in DRD

From: Yu Chen <>

Just resending this, as discussion died out a bit and I'm not
sure how to make further progress. See here for debug data that
was requested last time around:

With the current dwc3 code on the HiKey960 we often see the
COREIDLE flag get stuck off in __dwc3_gadget_start(), which
seems to prevent the reset irq and causes the USB gadget to
fail to initialize.

We had seen occasional initialization failures with older
kernels but with recent 5.x era kernels it seemed to be becoming
much more common, so I dug back through some older trees and
realized I dropped this quirk from Yu Chen during upstreaming
as I couldn't provide a proper rational for it and it didn't
seem to be necessary. I now realize I was wrong.

After resubmitting the quirk, Thinh Nguyen pointed out that it
shouldn't be a quirk at all and it is actually mentioned in the
programming guide that it should be done when switching modes
in DRD.

So, to avoid these !COREIDLE lockups seen on HiKey960, this
patch issues GCTL soft reset when switching modes if the
controller is in DRD mode.

* Rework to always call the GCTL soft reset in DRD mode,
  rather then using a quirk as suggested by Thinh Nguyen

* Move GCTL soft reset under the spinlock as suggested by
  Thinh Nguyen
