So I did some further research on this and it turns out that:
- URB_NO_TRANSFER_DMA_MAP is not set on the offending transfers so
the issue really is buffer alignment
- DWC2_USB_DMA_ALIGN=4 "works" because in my limited testcase (usb
4g-dongle utilized via qmi-wwan) all transfers are unaligned. That is,
every urb->transfer_buffer is misaligned by 2 bytes == unaligned
- I can fix both issues and thus make the patch work on MIPS by
modifying it like this:

-#define DWC2_USB_DMA_ALIGN 4
+#define DWC2_USB_DMA_ALIGN dma_get_cache_alignment()

struct dma_aligned_buffer {
void *old_xfer_buffer;
- u8 data[0];
+ u8 data[0] ____cacheline_aligned;
