Thanks Robin and Christoph for the feedback.

If I understand correctly, usb_intf_get_dma_device API is mainly for usb
host drivers? I just found usb_gadget_map_request_by_dev API: does it
make sense to replace usb_gadget_map_request with
usb_gadget_map_request_by_dev so we can pass the actual DMA-capable
hardware device (aspeed-vhub platform device) to the API?
