It's mainly used for Type-B connector with ID pin.

It's need add another compatible "usb-b-connector" except the driver
provided.

Yes, it is.

agree:)

I'm not sure, but prefer misc/ folder.

Hi Greg, 

would you please give me some suggestions about this?  which folder I
should put the driver into?

I think about the name for a long time before, and have some doubt
whether it's suitable to add typeb into the name.
How about using usb-conn-gpio.c or conn-usb-gpio.c?

Thanks a lot
