No, every level should handle its own wakeup setting. You may have to do this since the USB bus and platform bus
are two different buses, you should not visit device structure across the bus. And you don't need a device tree property
to do it. For platform driver, you could use device_may_wakeup, for onboard hub power driver, you could use
usb_wakeup_enabled_descendants since you need to cover descendants.
The purpose of these two wakeup logic is different, for USB bus, it is used to tell USB devices to enable remote wakeup
and do not power off its regulator; for platform bus, it is used to tell the controller to enable its wakeup setting and keep
the regulator for its USB controller and USB PHY (if needed).
