Well, it is just for *easy to use*. Looking up /sys/class/udc mostly
can be skipped. The UDC core support this convenience behavior,
so why don't we export it with a little change?

That is not a problem. But just avoid pseudo 'busy'. If gadget is not
bind, it is free to reconfigure it. So seem no need block re-configuration.

In a word, this patch is just an improvement, not to fix any issues or
add new function.
