IMO it isn't a message which could be ignored. The dwc2 tries to detected the
USB role from compile configuration and hardware capabilities, but according to
the decision table [1] we should provide the correct dr_mode which is import for
FIFO configuration and so on.

Another problem that i see is that the USB behavior is influenced by compile
settings in a unexpected way. With arm/configs/bcm2835_defconfig the driver is
forced to host, but in a multiplatform config like arm64/configs/defconfig not.
I would expect a more stable dr_mode.

At the end the dwc2 can't reliable detect the dr_mode because it depends on the
board design.

Any concerns?
