Subject: RE: [PATCH v3] usb: chipidea: Grab the (legacy) USB PHY by phandle
 first

 
> According to the chipidea driver bindings, the USB PHY is specified via the "phys"
> phandle node. However, this only takes effect for USB PHYs that use the common
> PHY framework. For legacy USB PHYs, a simple lookup based on the USB PHY
> type is done instead.
> 
> This does not play out well when more than one USB PHY is registered, since the
> first registered PHY matching the type will always be returned regardless of what
> the driver was bound to.
> 
> Fix this by looking up the PHY based on the "phys" phandle node.
> Although generic PHYs are rather matched by their "phys-name" and not the "phys"
> phandle directly, there is no helper for similar lookup on legacy PHYs and it's
> probably not worth the effort to add it.
> 
> When no legacy USB PHY is found by phandle, fallback to grabbing any registered
> USB2 PHY. This ensures backward compatibility if some users were actually relying
> on this mechanism.

I think you may need to do above if ci->phy is error, and not the error is -EPROBE_DEFER.
