(I just realized my reply was stuck in my outbox, so the patch
went out first)

If I recall correctly, the rough consensus was to go with your longer
patch in the future (fixed up for the comments that BenH and
I sent), and I'd suggest basing it on top of a fixed version of
my patch.

Felipe just had another idea, to change the endianess of the dwc2
block by setting a registers (if that exists). That would indeed
be preferable, then we can just revert the broken change that
went into 4.4 and backport that fix instead.
