right. That would bind the PHY driver and the controller driver and would
start creating problems when a different PHY is connected with the

The polling can still be done in PHY driver and can use the extcon framework
to report the status to controller driver no?

musb-core or the musb-glue (musb/sunxi.c in this case)?

What will writing to this register lead to? call to sunxi_musb_id_vbus_det_irq
interrupt handler?

Please don't do that. We don't want to be bloating phy framework with platform
specific hooks.
