That is not possible as it will break the dt-bindings for existing

And that adds a lot of complexity without a good reason, as I mentioned
in my reply to Kishon if we want to make 100% sure that we've the
right controller, we should pass in the phy index argument to the
phandle to of_usb_get_dr_mode_by_phy and make of_usb_get_dr_mode_by_phy
check this.

I'll submit a v2 which does this.
