[PATCH v8 0/5] USB: misc: Add onboard_usb_hub driver

From: Matthias Kaehlcke
Date: Wed Apr 28 2021 - 14:41:45 EST

This series adds:
- the onboard_usb_hub_driver
- glue in the xhci-plat driver to create the onboard_usb_hub
platform device if needed
- a device tree binding for the Realtek RTS5411 USB hub controller
- 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.
