Sounds like you need to brush up on how USB works.  The host
controller can talk to any endpoint on any device, and it schedules
the transfers for them.  There are no host-side endpoints like there
are on the device.

This question is very off-topic for this list.  You should refer to
the USB standards documentation or look for a USB specific mailing
list.  Please don't ask non-Linux questions on a Linux mailing list.
