okay, so AM437x can get OTG interrupts properly. That's fine. We can
still do everything we need using code that's already existing in dwc3
if we refactor it a bit and hook it up to the OTG IRQ handler.

Here's what we do:

* First we re-factor all necessary code around so the API for OTG/DRD
is resumed to calling:


the semantics of these should be easy to understand and you can
implement each in their respective host.c/gadget.c files.

* Second step is to modify our dwc3_init_mode() (or whatever that
function was called, sorry, didn't check) to make sure we have
something like:

case OTG:

We should *not* add HCD in this case yet.

* After that we add otg.c (or drd.c, no preference) and make that call
dwc3_add_udc(dwc) and, also, provide
dwc3_add_otg(dwc)/dwc3_del_otg(dwc) calls. Then patch the switch
statement above to:

case OTG:

Note that at this point, this is simply a direct replacement of
dwc3_add_udc() to dwc3_add_otg(). This should maintain current behavior
(which is starting with peripheral mode by default), but it should also
add support for OTG interrupts to change the mode (from an interrupt


/* don't forget to remove preivous mode if necessary */
if (perimode)

* The next patch would be to choose default conditionally based on
PERIMODE or whatever.

Of course, this is an oversimplified view of reality. You still need to
poke around at PRTCAPDIR, etc. But all this can, actually, be prototyped
using our "mode" debugfs file. Just make that call
dwc3_add/del_udc/hcd() apart from fiddling with PRTCAPDIR in GCTL.

Your first implementation could be just that. Refactoring what needs to
be refactored, then patching "mode" debugfs to work properly in that
case. Only add otg.c/drd.c after "mode" debugfs file is stable, because
then you know what needs to be taken into consideration.

Just to be clear, I'm not saying we should *ONLY* get the debugfs
interface for v4.12, I'm saying you should start with that and get that
stable and working properly (make an infinite loop constantly changing
modes and keep it running over the weekend) before you add support for
OTG interrupts, which could come in the same series ;-)
