okay, so the thing is about PP being dropped. Right, that should happen
indeed. However, this still shouldn't cause any problems, since
peripheral side shouldn't connect its pull-ups until VBUS is above
session valid threshold.

For how long is VBUS dropped in this case?

that's good, then we can debug this. Can you collect xhci tracepoints of
when the problem happens?

If, indeed, there is a quirk here, then a quirk can be passed from dwc3
to xhci-plat, yes.


ps: Mathias, did you see any behavior like this? A drop in VBUS voltage
causing issues during enumeration?
