Ok, let's put this patch set in mainline first, since your patch set may need some
information from it.

Since "dr_mode" has been widely used now, if we add a new property for it, we
need to change all drivers.

Your OTG/DRD framework needs to (partial) use otg fsm, and we will not teach old
driver to use it since there are some driver related stuffs.

SRP/HNP/ADP support can be board level capabilities, and we may consider the
otg device which does not support otg fsm (hardware finishes fsm). So I suggest
we have below properties at dts:

- otg-support /* fully otg support */
- otg-fsm-support /* fully otg fsm support */
- otg-ver /* eh & otg supplement version */
- adp-support /* board adp support */
- srp-support /* board srp support */
- hnp-support /* board hnp support */

Currently, if CONFIG_USB_OTG and CONFIG_USB_OTG_FSM are enabled, we will
have otg fsm code (usb-otg-fsm.c).

if (otg-support & otg-fsm-support)
this device has fully otg support, and will follow full otg fsm transitions.
else
this device is drd, and will follow simple otg fsm transtions.
