SubjectRe: [PATCHv3 2/4] usb: gadget: replace "is_dualspeed" with "max_speed"

That's an important point. If somebody wants to build a composite
gadget that includes both midi and storage support, the storage driver
would be able to go all the way up to SuperSpeed (or rather, it will
once Felipe's patch is finished and merged) but the midi driver would
only support full speed. So what speed should the UDC connect at?

In cases like this there's really no way to know. Ultimately the best
approach would be to update the midi driver, but that's a long-term
sort of thing.

Usually when the kernel can't decide something, it asks the user for
help (by allowing the user to specify the speed via a module parameter,
for instance). In this case even that wouldn't work, because the
gadget's userspace isn't aware of which functions the host's user will
want to utilize.

At the moment I don't know the best answer. This is something we
should all think about.
