Subject: [RFC PATCH 0/1] usb: dwc3: Extcon hotplug support to of-simple

Some platforms like rk3399 would like to power on the USB PHY layer only
when external devices are connected. This patch introduces optional
support for extcon USB_HOST events, so that child devices are
populated/depopulated when external devices are connected/disconnected,

This is also useful since some PHY drivers like phy-rockchip-typec only
configure their Type C Phy on power on; if they are only powered on once
at boot by dwc3, these drivers will not be able to reconfigure their PHY
for peripherals plugged in later, like (Display Port) DP monitors.

I thought I’d send out an initial RFC patch, for comments and feedback
about the approach. Depending on feedback, we can refine this approach
and modify the bindings file.
