Subject: [PATCH v20 0/5] usb: misc: Add onboard_usb_hub driver

This series adds:
- the onboard_usb_hub_driver
- glue in the generic HCD code to create and destroy the
  onboard_usb_hub platform devices if needed
- device tree changes that add RTS5411 entries for the QCA SC7180
  based boards trogdor and lazor
- a couple of stubs for platform device functions to avoid
  unresolved symbols with certain kernel configs

The main issue the driver addresses is that a USB hub needs to be
powered before it can be discovered. For discrete onboard hubs (an
example for such a hub is the Realtek RTS5411) this is often solved
by supplying the hub with an 'always-on' regulator, which is kind
of a hack. Some onboard hubs may require further initialization
steps, like changing the state of a GPIO or enabling a clock, which
requires even more hacks. This driver creates a platform device
representing the hub which performs the necessary initialization.
Currently it only supports switching on a single regulator, support
for multiple regulators or other actions can be added as needed.
Different initialization sequences can be supported based on the
compatible string.

Besides performing the initialization the driver can be configured
to power the hub off during system suspend. This can help to extend
battery life on battery powered devices which have no requirements
to keep the hub powered during suspend. The driver can also be
configured to leave the hub powered when a wakeup capable USB device
is connected when suspending, and power it off otherwise.

Changes in v20:
- addressed review comments from Stephen
- changed DT node names for hubs

Changes in v19:
- added VID:PID pairs and compatible strings for RTS5414 hub
- updated comments with RTS5411 USB versions to reflect those
  reported/supported by the hub
- rebased series on v5.16

Changes in v18:
- introduced hidden Kconfig option to align module vs. builtin
  choice with CONFIG_USB (thanks Doug!)
- added patch 'driver core: Export device_is_bound()'
- also adjust device tree of pompom rev1
- dropped the following patches, which aren't needed anymore by this
  series (though they might still be useful on their own):
  - usb: Specify dependencies on USB_XHCI_PLATFORM with 'depends on'
  - arm64: defconfig: Explicitly enable USB_XHCI_PLATFORM
  - ARM: configs: Explicitly enable USB_XHCI_PLATFORM where needed

Changes in v17:
- rebased on top of v5.16-rc1
- moved creation of onboard_hub platform devices from xhci_platform
  to the generic HCD code
- addressed review comments for the onboard_hub driver
- moved Kconfig/defconfig changes to the end of the series. The
  onboard_hub driver doesn't depend on XHCI_PLATFORM anymore,
  hence these changes aren't really required for the driver, but
  they still seem to be a worthwhile improvement

Changes in v16:
- added patch 'ARM: configs: Explicitly enable USB_XHCI_PLATFORM
  where needed' to keep arm32 defconfigs effectively unchanged

Changes in v15:
- adjusted dependencies of USB_DWC3_CORE to make sure it can only
  be enabled when at least one of USB_DWC3_HOST, USB_DWC3_GADGET
  or USB_DWC3_DUAL_ROLE is selectable

Changes in v14:
- rebased on top of v5.14-rc1
- dropped DT binding patch which landed in v5.13

Changes in v13:
- added patch "usb: Specify dependency on USB_XHCI_PLATFORM with
  'depends on'" to the series to avoid Kconfig conflicts
- added patch "arm64: defconfig: Explicitly enable USB_XHCI_PLATFORM"
  to the series to keep effective defconfig unchanged

Changes in v12:
  in onboard_hub.h to also check for the driver built as module
- onboard_hub_driver: include onboard_hub.h again to make sure there
  are prototype declarations for the public functions

Changes in v11:
- support multiple onboard hubs connected to the same parent
- don't include ‘onboard_hub.h’ from the onboard hub driver

Changes in v10:
- always use of_is_onboard_usb_hub() stub unless ONBOARD_USB_HUB=y/m
- keep 'regulator-boot-on' property for pp3300_hub

Changes in v9:
- added dependency on ONBOARD_USB_HUB (or !ONBOARD_USB_HUB) to

Changes in v7:
- updated DT binding
- series rebased on qcom/arm64-for-5.13

Changes in v6:
- updated summary

Changes in v5:
- cover letter added
