I don't think this is a good way to go about it. Do you (the glue
driver) create a role switch structure and register to the same role
switch device that the dwc3 core would register later? I did not expect
that to work at all.

How about we create a couple ops callbacks to dwc3 structure. One to
initialize gadget and the other for host. Should any platform specific
device need some intialization before initializing the specific role, we
can invoke these callbacks.


struct dwc3_glue_ops {
int (*init_gadget)(struct dwc3 *dwc);
int (*init_host)(struct dwc3 *dwc);

struct dwc3 {
const struct dwc3_glue_ops *ops;

static int dwc3_glue_init_gadget(struct dwc3 *dwc)
if (!dwc->ops->init_gadget)
return 0;

return dwc->ops->init_gadget(dwc);

static int dwc3_glue_init_host(struct dwc3 *dwc)
if (!dwc->ops->init_host)
return 0;

return dwc->ops->init_host(dwc);

Your glue driver would implement these callbacks. In dwc3_gadget_init()
and dwc3_host_init(), we can call these callbacks at start. I admit that
this may not be the greatest solution since it would require the glue
driver to alloc and register a dwc3 platform device. But I think should
be ok. If anyone else can chime in for more idea, it'd be great.
