No no, that's good. You do not want some other consumer of the same mux
controller to clobber your state (in case it's shared), so you absolutely
want to have the mux locked when you want it to remain in a specific

Yes, it *looks* ok...

...but since I do not know the usb code, I can't tell. What I worry about
is the usb core calling udc_id_switch_for_host or udc_id_switch_for_device
more than once without any call to the other in between. Maybe that is a
guarantee that the usb core makes? Or maybe it isn't? If e.g. there is a
third mode (or if one is added in the future), then the calls to
mux_control_select and mux_control_deselect would not be paired correctly.
Ok, sure, a third mode probably doesn't exist and will probably not be
added, but but but...

Also, what happens if udc_id_switch_for_device fails? Is it certain that
it will be called again before udc_id_switch_for_host is called, or is
the failure simply logged? If the latter, you might have a call to
mux_control_deselect without a preceding (and successful) call to
mux_control_select. That's fatal.

I have similar worries for host_start/host_stop, but for that case
host_stop is not allowed to fail, and it seems like a safe bet that
host_stop will only be called if host_start succeeds. So, I'm not as
worried there.

In other words, the question is if the usb core is designed to allow
this kind of "raw" resource administration in udc_id_switch_for_host and
udc_id_switch_for_device, or if you need to keep a local record of the
state so that you do not do double resource acquisition or attempt to
free resources you don't have?

I think I would feel better if the muxing for the device mode could
be done in a start/stop pair of function just like the host mode is
doing. Again, I don't know the usb code and don't know if such hooks
exist or not?
