Is it possible to add a wire that connects VBUS to the right pin on the MPU ? Just to see if this has an impact or not ?

But assuming the chip USB controller has no design flaws, and assuming it should be possible to do without VBUS sensing, then the present code should be missing some detail.

I would prefer to have a clear understanding of what is causing the issue before making any changes to the patch sent by Jonas in the upstream kernel.
Marcelo, can you point where the driver hangs ? One can enable debug messages in the driver by using #define DEBUG_LEVEL DBG_ALL in atmel_usba_udc.h.

I was able to run the tests on the kernel version pointed by Marcelo (5.10) on SAMA5D2 Xplained and on SAM9x60-EK (the USB IP version on this one should be closer to AT91SAM9G25).
It works on both boards with no issues. Both our boards use VBUS sensing.  Unfortunately, currently I do not have access to a board with AT91SAM9G25 or to ACME Arietta to check / debug on it.
