Sorry about that :(

The *build* issues were actually fixed, however I did not try
modules_install ...

I think the dependency situation can only be resolved by linking
onboard_hub_create/destroy_pdevs() into the USB core module. My initial
idea was to build them into the kernel binary, however that doesn't
work because onboard_hub_create_pdevs() calls usb_of_get_device_node(),
which is part of the core module when CONFIG_USB=m. The two function
are relatively lightweight and don't depend on internals of the
onboard_usb_hub driver (besides the device id table) so linking them
into the core module doesn't seem too ugly.
