I don't think you need to go that far, unless you see a significant
likelihood think that such a computer might be created one day. This
depends on how hard and risky such a change is, of course.

But the current driver's userspace interface should at least
anticipate the possibility, so you aren't trapped into a weird or
non-back-compatible interface in the future.

So for now you might choose to do something as simple as renaming
/config/pcie-gadget to /config/pcie-gadget0 and leave it at that.
