As long as the file is being used by other source files, don't delete
it. If you want to fix up all those other places and then delete the
file, that's fine. But of course, it would have to be a separate set of

It will also be necessary to audit the places in the kernel that
currently use usb_device_speed. Some of them may need to be extended to
handle the new entries properly. (Including, obviously, the parts of
the code that store the device's speed in the first place.)
