Well, causing trouble when modules are removed was not the intention.
I was just happy to have things working a bit again.
The phy is powered on/off via
musb_platform_enable()/musb_platform_disable().

Calls to musb_platform_enable() occur at only 1 place.
musb_platform_disable() is called at 4 places.

about balancing:
There is musb_start() and musb_stop(). They are called from
musb_gadget_start/stop()
These call musb_platform_enable() and musb_platform_disable().
Looks ok.

There is musb_suspend() and musb_resume():

musb_suspend() calls musb_platform_disable()
musb_resume() calls musb_plaform_enable() via musb_start()
looks balanced but why don't we use musb_stop() in musb_suspend()?

Now the odd things:
musb_platform_disable() in musb_remove() called upon module removal
musb_platform_disable() in musb_init_controller() called from
musb_probe()

This looks clearly unbalanced.

Seems so. I am writing a patch for it.

Both as modules. I added some debug output to the driver/phy/phy-core.c
and have seen the phy->power_count sticking at -1 or 0. 
g_ether is also loaded.
Gadget stops for me (device not showing up at the other side) at 4.7rc4.
But I remember Nikolaus having the situation on the same type of device
that it was important on which side you replug the usb cable
(probably causing some timing differences) with 4.7rc1.
