Yes, I know it can be done by gadget-configfs, but how about the user
chooses other gadgets, eg: g_webcam, g_audio?

I forget to introduce the background of this topic, I have this issue
when I implement gadget bus patch set.
The current behaviour for other gadgets is auto-binding, so I want
to keep auto-binding at my gadget bus implementation, but manual-binding
is also a feature we need to support for other gadgets, so I
want auto-binding is the default binding way, and the user can switch
the two binding ways, eg, module parameters or sys entry.

But if both udc driver and gadget driver are built in, the user can't
let manual-binding work during the boot since the device-model will
do probe, and do auto-binding.

My v1 patch set [3/4] do a tricky way to work around it, I would like to
know if it can be supported by device model framework?
