I'll prepare a patch for it, and CC Biju and Yu

Some Dual-Role controller drivers already used extcon framework to
handle role switch, if try to support the new USB Role Switch framework,
the driver may want to know which way will be used.

Sometimes users also want to use dual-role even use the type-A, such as
use sys interface to handle role switch, so only knowing the connector
type can't tell driver which way to use
