Yes, this is possible. But it might not be easy.

Unfortunately there is no step 1-2-3 tutorial. What you have to do, is
get the USB controller on your board working from L4Linux. You have to
pass-through the respective device resources the Linux driver requires
and most likely other devices (clocks, GPIO pins) as well. Most likely
you have to modify/adapt the driver in Linux.
