Technically the polling can be moved to the phy driver yes, but it is not easy,
e.g. we only need to poll when we're in otg mode rather then host-only
or peripheral-only mode, and the mode gets set by the musb driver not phy
the phy driver. The sunxi musb implementation uses an integrated phy, so it
is just much easier and more logical to have all control / polling happening
from a single module rather then from 2 different modules.

No this changes the vbus and id status as seen by the musb core, and the musb
responds to this, by e.g. starting a session, or when vbus does not get high
after a session request by reporting a vbus-error interrupt.

The sunxi_musb_id_vbus_det_irq handler gets triggered by edges on the gpio
pins which are used to monitor the id and vbus status.

Right, that was my feeling too. I believe that using sunxi specific phy functions
here is best given that we're dealing with an otg controller + phy both if which
are integrated in the same SoC, so we will never seen one used without the other
or vice versa.
