For most production kernel (or kernel ready for customers), it may not enable
CONFIG_DYNAMIC_DEBUG.

Usually, the developer him(her)self wants to read it to know if current
USB gadget enumerated and what speed is recognized, reading from the
console by eyes is the quickest way. Without this message, there is no
any messages when the USB gadget connects to host.

If enable debug message, there are too many messages, but I think most
developers may only need one information message to know if enumeration
is established correctly.
