Well, the API is supposed to disconnect D+ pullup and that's about it.

because there might be cases where we don't need/want the gadget to know
about this disconnect.

it already _is_ exported. I just don't know why people are re-inventing
the same solution :-)

you could just rely on the sysfs interface, right ? :-)

what I've been doing is that I refer to dwc3, dwc3, etc as UDC (as in
USB Device Controller) and g_mass_storage, g_ether, g_zero, etc as
gadget driver.
