I have checked the register set of the following drivers under 
drivers/phy from the
master branch (v3.15-rc6) using the registers set available with us 
internally and
I can't find a match.

phy-exynos5250-sata.c  phy-exynos-mipi-video.c  phy-omap-usb2.c 
phy-xgene.c phy-exynos4210-usb2.c  phy-exynos5250-usb2.c phy-mvebu-sata.c
phy-samsung-usb2.c  phy-ti-pipe3.c phy-bcm-kona-usb2.c phy-exynos4x12-usb2.c
  phy-exynos-dp-video.c  phy-omap-control.c  phy-twl4030-usb.c

So there is no duplication.
