You were right to point to the obvious...

a) mainline with omap2plus_defconfig (+ minor patches for my build system) works.
(BTW it has no ethernet gadget).

b) mainline with letux_defconfig (+ minor patches for my build system) fails.

c) git diff letux-5.14 letux-5.15-rc1 arch/arm/configs/letux_defconfig
shows a bunch of changes but none is obviously related.

d) git diff letux-5.14 letux-5.15-rc1 arch/arm/configs/omap2plus_defconfig
is empty but some unspecified configs may have a different default now.

Note that I used am335x-boneblack+letux.dtb in both cases a+b (taken from
last build of letux tree and not am335x-boneblack.dtb from mainline).

So enough ideas for further research and potentially a bisect between
v5.14.0 and v5.15-rc1 (each time adding letux_defconfig) may also show
some dependency. Or a config bisect (which is more tricky but doable).
