Can you clarify "driver already has support"? You are introducing
support to use the VBUS gpio as regulator as part of 3/3.

I do see other instances of VBUS regulator being used in USB tree. But
we just converted the driver to use VBUS and over-current GPIOs in v5.1.
So this is a bit of "churn".

Can you document why the current solution is not optimal? Is it to make
future device-tree conversion for these boards easier? Or?
