Whether I should enable CONFIG_USB_OTG depends on what devices I will
use?  This is insane to me.

Look, there is an USB OTG port on my board, and it should just be the
reason that's good enough for me to build a kernel with CONFIG_USB_OTG,
shouldn't it?  I do not even know what type of devices will be plugged
into this USB OTG port when I was building the kernel.
