Then, how could your code work, you use usb_wakeup_enabled_descendants
to get if HUB or the descendants under the HUB has wakeup enabled?

If you use dwc3, you need to enable xhci-plat.c's wakeup entry if your
system needs xHCI connect/disconnect wakeup event. I have one pending
patch to do it:

Yes.
