you shoud use the 'union extcon_property_valu' as below.

Each external connector has the separate notifier independently.
All of operation in extcon should be done by each external connector unit.

I think that extcon_sync_all() is not appropriate. If the some extcon device
support the many connectors, maybe extcon send the un-needed notifications
for all connectors.

Also, extcon_sync_all(edev) is same operation with follwoing three
function calls:
extcon_sync(edev, EXTCON_USB);
extcon_sync(edev, EXTCON_USB_HOST);
extcon_sync(edev, EXTCON_DISP_DP);

So, the extcon client driver is able to set the vbus property with
EXTCON_DISP_DP as following:
- extcon_set_property(edev, EXTCON_DISP_DP, EXTCON_USB_VBUS, prop)
