take a look at xhci-ring.c for an example :-)

see that it check whether the attached device is a USB3.0 device or
USB2.0/1.1 device and chooses hcd or shared_hcd accordingly.

nope. If dummy_hcd was a SW xhci implementation then it should be taken
care by upper layers, but since this is a complete SW non-standard Host
interface, then we need to handle the whole thing.

not the exact wording of the Specs but it should work :-)

the USB3 host shouldn't enumerate but it has the shared_hcd which is
USB2.0 compliant.

Maybe Sarah can give more details on this one. Sarah, what happens if we
attach USB2.0 device to USB3.0 roothub ?
