maybe we should try a different strategy:

* checkout tag 4.10-rc4
* revert all dwc2 commits until ffc4b4067e1bb639834a716b4148efce736b2ba6 ("
usb: dwc2: cleanup with list_first_entry_or_null()")

So we are able to see if it's dwc2 related or not.

Btw wifi isn't a fast test scenario, is the keyboard issue reliable?
