Subject: [v2 PATCH] dt-binding: usb: add usb-role-switch property

Add a property usb-role-switch to tell Dual-Role controller driver
that use USB Role Switch framework to handle the role switch between
host mode and device mode, it's useful when the driver has already
supported other ways, such as extcon framework etc.

    describe it in terms of h/w functionality suggested by Rob

    the property is discussed in:

    Mediatek and Hisilicon also try to use it:
    [v4,3/6] dt-bindings: usb: mtu3: add properties about USB Role Switch
    [v4,6/6] usb: mtu3: register a USB Role Switch for dual role mode
