Sorry, I totally forgot that the name of that node is part of the USB
gadget configfs interface.

It won't help you, but having a mechanism to provide user friendly names
would certainly be welcome. I always struggle with the question of what
"6a00000.dwc3" (now .usb) actually is...

I don't have any preference to this being names "dwc3" or "usb" and we
could back out the change in time for v5.14. But you will still have the
problem for Hikey iiuc and the dts would then violate the binding - so
we need to fix that, and all the other Qualcomm boards defined by the
same binding.
