This patchset (currently a single patch) adds a new userspace interface
for the USB Gadget subsystem called USB Raw Gadget. This is what is
currently being used to enable coverage-guided USB fuzzing with syzkaller:


Initially I was using GadgetFS (together with the Dummy HCD/UDC module)
to perform emulation of USB devices for fuzzing, but later switched to a
custom written interface. The incentive to implement a different interface
was to provide a somewhat raw and direct access to the USB Gadget layer
for the userspace, where every USB request is passed to the userspace to
get a response. See documentation for the list of differences between
Raw Gadget and GadgetFS.

This patchset has been pushed to the public Linux kernel Gerrit instance:


Changes v4 -> v5:
- Specified explicit usb_raw_event_type enum values for all entries.
- Dropped pointless locking in gadget_unbind().

Changes v3 -> v4:
- Print debug message when maxpacket check fails.
- Use module_misc_device() instead of module_init/exit().
- Reuse DRIVER_NAME macro in raw_device struct definition.
- Don't print WARNING in raw_release().
- Add comment that explains locking into raw_event_queue_fetch().
- Print a WARNING when event queue size is exceeded.
- Rename raw.c to raw_gadget.c.
- Mention module name in Kconfig.
- Reworked logging to use dev_err/dbg() instead of pr_err/debug().

Changes v2 -> v3:
- Updated device path in documentation.
- Changed usb_raw_init struct layout to make it the same for 32 bit compat
- Added compat_ioctl to raw_fops.
- Changed raw_ioctl_init() to return EINVAL for invalid USB speeds, except
  for USB_SPEED_UNKNOWN, which defaults to USB_SPEED_HIGH.
- Reject endpoints with maxpacket = 0 in raw_ioctl_ep_enable().

Changes v1 -> v2:
- Moved raw.c to legacy/.
- Changed uapi header to use __u* types.
- Switched from debugfs entry to a misc device.
- Changed raw_dev from refcount to kref.
- Moved UDC_NAME_LENGTH_MAX to uapi headers.
- Used usb_endpoint_type() and usb_endpoint_dir_in/out() functions instead
  of open coding them.
- Added "WITH Linux-syscall-note" to SPDX id in the uapi header.
- Removed pr_err() if case dev_new() fails.
- Reduced the number of debugging messages.
