This is not DWC3 specific. 

Should we make this a UDC class device's sysfs attribute instead?
Only concern is that in dual-role case, if a role switch from
device mode to host mode and back to device mode happens, we loose
the UDC device's attributes as we re-init the UDC device.

Or should we make it a udc_core module parameter? This should be
persistent between role switches.

Got it. Will avoid using it ;)
