Like I mentioned at above, the hardware finishes HNP/SRP which does not
use otg fsm code (usb-otg-fsm.c), most of legacy otg platforms (musb?)
use this way, for these platforms, only need to set otg-support = 1

For platforms which software finishes HNP/SRP using otg fsm code, need
to set both flags.

For platforms which only do role switch through id pin, do not need to
set both.

Since most of otg stuffs are software's, eg, for otg descriptor, we will
only use otg 2.0 descriptor when both CONFIG_USB_OTG20 and otg-ver = 20
are set.

Yes.

Does you know any dts based platform supports hnp/srp?
For chipidea platform, currently, we depends on kernel
configurations (CONFIG_USB_OTG_FSM), but it is incorrect way.

How the OTG core's know if it supports these?
