I think that extcon provider driver have to update the only one cable state
of either USB or USB-HOST because USB and USB-HOST feature can not be used
at the same time through one h/w port.

If extcon-usb-gpio.c update two connected event of both USB and USB-HOST cable
at the same time, the extcon consumer driver can not decide what handle either USB or USB-HOST.
