Making it a bool wouldn't really be accurate either since it could
still be built as part of the xhci-plat-hcd loadable module. Gregory,
do you have a preference? I could also re-spin making xhci-mvebu and
independently-loadable module.

Well I don't think xhci-plat can ever go away (it's possible that
there are XHCI platform devices that need no extra platform-specific
setup), but yes, I agree that dwc3 and xhci-mvebu should be converted
over to use xhci_init_driver().
