The above setup generally works.

However, from time to time I do encounter some HID multi-touch driver
initialization errors, which render the touchscreen unusable - e.g:

usb 1-1: input irq status -75 received
usb 1-1: reset low-speed USB device number 2 using ci_hdrc
expected 16 bytes, got -1

or

hid-generic 0003:19E2:2533.0002: unknown main item tag 0x0
hid-generic 0003:19E2:2533.0002: unknown main item tag 0x0
hid-generic 0003:19E2:2533.0002: unbalanced collection at end of report
description
hid-generic: probe of 0003:19E2:2533.0002 failed with error -22


I've added 100 ms settle time for the VBUS regulator, but I'm not sure
if it will fix this issue (I'm going to inspect VBUS voltage with
oscilloscope).

Since I do have above errors, I thought that it would be feasible to
have a "mean" to re-set VBUS voltage and force enumeration of the device.

I'm quite curious how USB connected touchscreens are controlled with
USB's VBUS not accessible from user-space out of the box?

Best regards.
