The above needs to be "tristate", not bool.

Weirdly the way you have it if you set "CONFIG_USB=m" and
"CONFIG_USB_ONBOARD_HUB=y" you don't get any compile errors, but also
the onboard usb hub doesn't even get compiled (!). Once you switch to
tristate then setting "CONFIG_USB=m" will force the onboard hub to be
a module too (since it's underneath the "if" in the Kconfig).

...ugh, but once you do that then you start getting compile errors if
you have "CONFIG_USB=y" and "CONFIG_USB_ONBOARD_HUB=m". I guess that
can be fixed with something like this

-usbcore-$(CONFIG_USB_ONBOARD_HUB) += ../misc/onboard_usb_hub_pdevs.o
+usbcore-y += ../misc/onboard_usb_hub_pdevs.o

Given the problems we've had in the past, please make sure you test
with all combinations of "=y" and "=m" for CONFIG_USB and
CONFIG_USB_ONBOARD_HUB. Note that on sc7180-trogdor devices if you
want CONFIG_USB to be a module don't forget to also set
CONFIG_USB_DWC3=m or DWC3 will force you to gadget mode...

super nitty, but the above two lines of comment could be word-wrapped better.

As per my response on v22, would you be willing to rename that to
"parent_hcd"? I'll probably still confuse myself next time I read this
function, but at least maybe this will help me recognize more quickly
that this isn't necessarily the child's hcd in the case of the root
