Hi Peter,

Thank you for your input. I've actually considered doing some
matching/resizing in the .match_ep route as well, but it doesn't work
well for situations where multiple configurations are in play. The
reason being that if you look at the epautoconf APIs, the configfs
driver will use the usb_ep_autoconfig_reset() to reset the endpoints
claimed between initialization of each configuration. This means that
the epautoconf driver expects to re-use the usb_endpoints:

static int configfs_composite_bind(struct usb_gadget *gadget,
struct usb_gadget_driver *gdriver)

/* Go through all configs, attach all functions */
list_for_each_entry(c, &gi->cdev.configs, list) {
list_for_each_entry_safe(f, tmp, &cfg->func_list, list) {
ret = usb_add_function(c, f);
if (ret) {
list_add(&f->list, &cfg->func_list);
goto err_purge_funcs;

So in this situation, I wouldn't want the dwc3 gadget driver to assign a
different dwc3 ep for endpoints in each configuration, when we know that
only one set of EPs will be active when the host chooses. I hope I
understood your feedback correctly, and definitely appreciate the input!
