OK, so v4.18-rc4 is also broken. Bisecting between that and v4.18 points
to a930d8bd94d (usb: chipidea: Always build ULPI code) introduced in
-rc7. The Makefile/Kconfig parts of that commit should not make any
difference wrt. 2059e527a6, since that commit explicitly set
USB_CHIPIDEA_ULPI, so we compile the same TUs with or without
a930d8bd94d. However, a930d8bd94d also adds this hunk

diff --git a/drivers/usb/chipidea/ulpi.c b/drivers/usb/chipidea/ulpi.c
index 6da42dcd2888..dfec07e8ae1d 100644
--- a/drivers/usb/chipidea/ulpi.c

int cnt = 100000;

return 0;

and indeed just adding that on top of v4.14.67 makes it work again.

I don't know what the best fix for -stable is; the hunk above is the
minimal fix, but does not correspond to a mainline commit. a930d8bd94d
does cherrypick cleanly to v4.14.67, so might be the better option.
