Is there a reason for adding a new function for this? This is exactly
what the USB_GADGET_DELAYED_STATUS return value from the setup callback
is meant for (and it is already used by some gadget drivers).

Is it a question of when the gadget driver learns that it will need to
delay the status stage? If that's the case, why not always return
USB_GADGET_DELAYED_STATUS from the setup callback? Then instead of
calling usb_ep_delay_status() when a delay is needed, you could queue
the status request when a delay isn't needed.

As a more general solution, Felipe has said that a UDC driver should
_never_ carry out the status stage transaction until the gadget driver
has told it to do so. Then there would be no need for any sort of
delay indicator. (But implementing this would require significant
changes to a bunch of different drivers...)
