So the 'struct phy *' available in the usb_hcd is requested in usb_add_hcd().
This is requested with the constant string 'usb' :
           struct phy *phy = phy_get(hcd->self.controller, "usb");

This can get the phy with string 'usb' only if, either the host
controller has a device node wherein the phys are given.
Even in this case one can't give same constant string for two
different phys, UTMI+ and PIPE3 phy, isn't it ?

Or, the other way can be when host gets a lookup table to look into to
find the relevant phys, something like
Heikki has suggested:
usb: dwc3: host: convey the PHYs to xhci
(https://lkml.org/lkml/2014/6/5/585) and related patch series.

So if we use this second approach, we would need to override the
'phy_get()' that has been done in usb_add_hcd()
in xhci_plat_probe(), and then use them in later operations.

am i getting the things correctly ?
