Instead of implementing a hub, it might be possible to redo the
composite driver in such a way that the individual function drivers are
added as separate modules at runtime, rather than all bound together at
compile time.

The details would be tricky, but I think it could be done. One
important point is that somehow you have to inform the composite core
when all the function drivers have been loaded and initialized --
otherwise there's no way to tell when it's safe to enable the pull-ups
and connect to the host.
