I did not say AM335xEVM is not able to run OTG mode. The problem is in
OTG mode the SESSION bit will be cleared once the device is unplugged,
then there is no way the SESSION bit will come back in the current
mainline kernel.

The TI 3.2 kernel works around this OTG issue by toggling the SESSION
bit in b_idle handling in otg_timer(). The workaround makes most users
happy but it causes VBUS voltage pulsing. That is why I said I don't
know an ideal solution without a ID pin interrupt support.

I think you looked at a wrong file, maybe a wrong branch. Please check
[1], which defines

2644 * mode[0:3] = USB0PORT's mode
2645 * mode[4:7] = USB1PORT's mode
2646 * AM335X beta EVM has USB0 in OTG mode and USB1 in host mode.
2647 */
2648 .mode = (MUSB_HOST << 4) | MUSB_OTG,

Then because AM335xEVM USB1 port does not call *try_idle() in this 3.2
kernel, its SESSION bit is always set.

But I don't have a clear idea how to solve this in the mainline kernel
since is_otg_enabled() has been cleaned.
