You need to look at the implementation of usb_hub_for_each_child() and
usb_hub_find_child() to determine that, which you now forced me to
do; and yes, you're right, this shouldn't matter from an efficiency

It is a shortcut as this interrupt is per-port and some SoC's already
use it. So you're making a mess of the implementation for no good

As I've mentioned a few times now, the hs_phy_irq is already used by a
few SoC's so you can't just pretend it doesn't exist and mess up the
implementation for no good reason.

Just find out how it is used and why only some Qualcomm SoC's use it
currently. It appears to be used in parallel with the DP/DM interrupts,
and it has been there from the start:

	a4333c3a6ba9 ("usb: dwc3: Add Qualcomm DWC3 glue driver")

Sure, the wakeup implementation was incomplete and broken for a long
time, but I'm not going to let you continue this practise of pushing
incomplete hacks upstream which someone else will eventually be forced
to clean up. You have the documentation, just use it.
