Apart from enabling pll_u and vbus, that function mostly fetches clocks 
etc. from the device tree and as such should preferably fail the probe() 
and not when the EHCI driver enables the PHY. (Renaming it would 
probably be a good idea.)

That's true, but due to the above that'd be a bigger refactoring.

No. But Greg apparently applied these to his tree earlier today.
