Ok, so I've fixed things in my personal tree to use 2 sun4i private functions for

void sun4i_usb_phy_set_id_detect(struct phy *phy, bool val);
void sun4i_usb_phy_set_vbus_detect(struct phy *phy, bool val);

You can find this change here:

I'll wait a bit to see if there are more review comments and then
I'll send a v2 of the set.
