Unfortunately in the current implementation there isn't. We must set the
driver speed at usb_composite_probe().
The (not full) call stack for composite driver registration is:
1. usb_composite_probe()
2. usb_gadget_probe_driver()
3. composite_bind() - here the device descriptor is updated (fields such as
bMaxPacketSize0, idVendor, etc)
4. the gadgets "bind" function is called. For example for g_zero it's
zero_bind(). Only at this point will the function driver register it's
configurations and for each registered config - add the appropriate
So as you can see, whether the gadget driver supports/or not SS can be
determined only at the end of the registration sequence, whether as far as
UDC is concerned, we need to set the correct driver speed at the very
beginning - at usb_composite_probe().

Felipe - please correct me if I'm mistaken. Is there a way to find out at
usb_composite_probe() if the registered function driver will support SS?

I also thought of that. This can be done...
Just to make sure we're on the same page:
We can add a "max_sup_speed" field to struct usb_composite_driver. Each of
the Gadget drivers will set this field prior to calling
usb_composite_probe(). Then, in usb_composite_probe(), we'll update the
composite_driver.speed as follows:

composite_driver.speed = min(composite_driver.speed,

Of course for SS we'll update the composite_driver.speed @ static struct
usb_gadget_driver composite_driver, as we agreed with Felipe.

How does that sound? Felipe - it seems to me that these should cover your
hesitations about updating the driver speed :)

Now that I think about it, the above will be true for HS as well. I mean the
current speed of composite_driver is set always to HS but if there is a
function driver that supports only FS then the above will update
composite_driver.speed to FS.
