>From what I understand, with the H3, Allwinner has put a mux
in front of the MUSB controller. The mux can send the USB data
to/from the MUSB controller, or a standard EHCI/OHCI pair.
This register controls said mux.

This means we can use a proper USB host for host mode,
instead of the limited support in MUSB.
