primary and companion controllers are totally independent of each other
e.g. EHCI and OHCI. They are enabled by separate Kconfig options and
the system can operate with either or both of them enabled.

At the OTG layer we don't have information as to whether we should be waiting
for both of them to register or not and hence need this "hcd-needs-companion" flag.
