And it should not be. This flag is indicator, that endpoint is used by 
some function. It should be set once by usb_ep_autoconfig() and cleared 
by usb_ep_autoconfig_reset().

I wonder what is reason of this enable/disable regression. Maybe the 
problem is that we don't set ep->driver_data to NULL in 
usb_ep_autoconfig_reset() (so far it was done). Does this problem occur 
while gadget is binded to UDC for the first time, or at any next time? 
Unfortunately at this moment I don't have access to my hardware, so it 
will take a moment before I will setup some testing environment.
