if it's something like that, for sure we can have the module parameter. But
plugging a USB2 gadget/function to a USB3-capable UDC/HCD should
work fine.

With Tatyana's patches, if we load a USB2 g_zero to dummy_hcd, enumeration
will fail where it shouldn't. This has been my whole point ;-) Maybe I wasn't
clear enough.

it should at least. Isn't that what happens between EHCI/OHCI ? HS Chirp
sequencing fails, then we fall back to FullSpeed.

USB3.0 dummy_hcd should still enumerate USB2.0 gadget drivers.
