I tested this patch.

Here use module_init() indeed have a race as Felipe said before.
usbcore uses subsys_initcall(), and have a higher priority than
module_init(), so when usbcore tries to create "devices" file,
usb_debug_root is not created.

after I replace it by postcore_initcall() (debugfs uses
core_initcall()), test two cases:

1. buildin usbcore/udc-core

    "usb" directory is created, and usb/devices file is also created by
usbcore

2. build both usbcore and gadget as ko

    usbcore.ko, udc-core.ko and usb-common.ko are created. 

   2.1 
       insmod usb-common.ko   // "usb" directory is created
       insmod usb-core.ko   // usb/devices file is created

   2.2
       rmmod usb-common.ko  // failed, usb_common is in use by usb-core

   2.3 
       rmmod usb-core.ko   // usb/devices file is destroyed
       rmmod usb-common.ko  // usb directory is destroyed

   2.4 
       insmod usb-common.ko   // "usb" directory is created
       insmod udc-core.ko

   2.5
       rmmod usb-common.ko  // failed, usb_common is in use by udc-core

   2.6 
       rmmod udc-core.ko
       rmmod usb-common.ko  // usb directory is destroyed

they are all in line with expectations
