Does the Tegra platform use shared interrupts? If it does, what
happens if the IRQ is enabled and in use by another device before
ehci-tegra resets the USB controller?

Does the unwanted interrupt occur only when the controller is switched
to host mode? If not, it seems to me this reset belongs in the
platform code, not in the glue layer. If yes, the reset belongs
somewher before the controller is switched -- where does that occur?
