actually, this is quite useful. Specially for the controllers which
_can_ do soft-connect by toggling data pullups. I would rather have
these sort of thing maybe in composite.c, so that we can build tests
with all gadget drivers/controllers, not only dummy_hcd.

That said, I think now it's not the time to fiddle too much with these
details right now. So best to keep this in dummy_hcd until we know the
test tools are actually good.
