Agreed. That check (whether OTG descriptor can be added and which version
of it) has to be done at runtime and it must be added only if hardware
supports OTG _and_ kernel OTG support is enabled.

It would be nice that way but unfortunately it does't work in all cases.
e.g. What if the SoC itself supports all OTG features but the board is not
designed for OTG. Or the product designer simply is not interested in full OTG
support but just dual-role. So we need some flexibility for the
device tree/platform-data to specify that. This is where a new
"dr_mode" == "dual-role" is needed.

cheers,
