Re: [PATCH v2] usb: gadget: Add uevent to notify userspace

Hi all,

I do agree that udc-core's uevents can potentially be used here.
I will check the complete list of uevents sent by the udc-core's
usb_gadget_set_state function and see if the userspace is happy to work with it.
Now that Android is starting to use the configfs driver, it might be
much easier.

Android userspace always relies on uevents to notify the users. This is might
be the right opportunity to dig into the uevents fired by the udc-core code
and shift to it.

I will come back with questions/ findings.
