The code path this patch touches is in OTG_STATE_B_WAIT_ACON branch,
which is part of the OTG HNP handling, but OTG protocol support has been
disabled since commit 0a9134bd733b, so technically this code path won't
be reached.

Let's not bother with this ->hcd pointer check, and wait for OTG code
cleanup in this driver.

-Bin.
