Judging purely by the descriptions of the shared reset functionality in
this thread, I doubt that will work. A varying number of USB controllers
will be enabled in DT on a board-by-board basis, so anything that
attempts to wait for "all devices to assert reset" can't be implemented,
since it won't be known ahead of time how many reset assertions to wait
for. Equally, if device probes are serialized, the reset will not happen
at the right time since it can't happen until the nth probe (when each
device has asserted reset) but we want it to happen during the 1st probe.
