Thank you for your time.

Are you using a "USB3 debugging cable"? The internal wiring of
the debug cable is crossed over.

That might be problematic. I will put a comment there.

What I though was that reset USB 3.0 ports on debug target before setting
DCE bit will cause debug host to warm reset the port for enumeration
purpose and then setting the DCE bit will take effect.

This just works on my development machine, not only connecting debug
target to root port of host, but also under external hubs. I realized that
this quirk isn't a universal solution and it might not work with some
silicons. But I thought it shouldn't do any harmless. In bad case, users
could plug out and plug in the debug cable, or reset the port through
the sysfs node for workaround. If this is acceptable, I will add this in
the user guide and increase the timeout value in code.
