DWC2 is peripheral-only, but we can still manually switch one of the
ports and use it as peripheral with a Type-A to Type-A cable, thus
enabling dwc2.

If the OTG capable PHYs was behind an USB Hub or directly connected to
a device, we could disable dwc2, but for now this port is always tied
to a physical Type-A or micro-USB connector.

Maybe it would be sane to always enable dwc2, and disable it for specific
boards only.
