We added the new scheme because this is what the windows did , and mainly for
legacy low and full speed devices.
Now for new windows version(8.1 and later), the second port reset has already been
removed for high speed devices for better enumeration speed.
And In this patch if use_both_schemes is true, it will fallback to new scheme if the old
scheme fails.

So I think it's reasonable to follow the windows behavior again.

No, for SS device, only use old scheme, but for speed device, we can fallback to new
scheme if the old fails.

On the contrary, new scheme is only applicable for LOW/FULL speed devices?
