Oh. Got it. I was solely focusing on my use case (fastboot) and not
considering ums or other things.
Thank you for the explanation.
It probably makes sense to add it in the platform reset in that case.

# echo b > /proc/sysrq-trigger 
[ 3713.306318] sysrq: Resetting
[ 3713.306462] SMP: stopping secondary CPUs

Also triggers the same bug as the one I'm attempting to solve here.
We observe a very long delay before the host reports:
[31124.104342] usb 1-1: USB disconnect, device number 20

Thank you for bringing that up!
