Why do we need these new APIs? don't these suffice?
dwc3_gadget_init(dwc);
dwc3_gadget_exit(dwc);
dwc3_host_init(dwc);
dwc3_host_exit(dwc);

We also need to ensure that system suspend/resume doesn't break.
Mainly if we suspend/resume with UDC removed.

Just to clarify debugfs mode behaviour.

Currently it is just changing PRTCAPDIR. What we need to do is that if
dr_mode == "otg", then we call dwc3_host/gadget_init/exit() accordingly as well.

Does this make sense?
