Case A:

hcd platform driver doesn't know about otg device so it calls

usb_add_hcd(hcd,..)->usb_otg_register_hcd(NULL, hcd,..);

Case B:

core driver knows about both otg and hcd so it calls
usb_otg_register_hcd(otg, hcd,...);

code:

usb_otg_register_hcd(struct usb_otg *otg, struct usb_hcd *hcd, ...)
{
if (!otg) {
struct device *otg_dev;
struct device *hcd_dev = hcd->self.controller;

/* first get otg device */
if (hcd_dev->of_node) { /* DT */
struct device_node *np;
struct platform_device *pdev;

/* get otg from otg-controller property */
np = of_parse_phandle(hcd_dev->of_node, "otg-controller",
0);
pdev = of_find_device_by_node(np);
of_node_put(np);
if (!pdev) {
dev_err(&pdev->dev, "couldn't get otg-controller device\n");
return -EINVAL;
}

otg_dev = &pdev->dev;
} else {
/* Assume otg dev is parent */
otg_dev = hcd_dev->parent;
}

otg = usb_otg_get_data(otg_dev);
if (!otg) {
/* otg controller not registered */
return -EVINVAL
}
} else {
/* use otg as is */
}
}

usb_otg_get_data() returns the usb_otg structure if it finds a matching
otg_dev in the otg_dev list.

For this to work otg controller _must_ register before hcd/gadget.

Yes, let's discuss more in that direction.
