USB: partial USB embedded host support



This provides better support for USB "Embedded Host" functionality, which
is a subset of the USB OTG options:

 * External hub support can be disabled;

 * USB peripherals not whitelisted in "otg_whitelist.h" will be rejected
   during enumeration.

These options can allow some savings in software and support.

If you say Y here, the "otg_whitelist.h" file will be used as a
product whitelist, so USB peripherals not listed there will be
rejected during enumeration. This behavior is required by the
USB OTG specification for all devices not on your product's

allowed to support only a limited number of peripherals.
Otherwise, peripherals not listed there will only generate a
warning and enumeration will continue. That's more like what

If you say Y here, then Linux will refuse to enumerate
external hubs. OTG hosts are allowed to reduce hardware

are "Emedded Hosts" that don't offer OTG support.
