Subject: [RFC PATCH] usb: dwc2: Try usb_get_phy_by_phandle instead of usb_get_phy

On probe the dwc2 driver tries two path to get an usb phy, first calling
devm_phy_get() and secondly with devm_usb_get_phy().

However the current implementation of devm_phy_get() never return a valid
phy for usb-nop-xceiv. And the current implementation of devm_usb_get_phy
only check for phy that's has already been registered.

During boot, I see the dwc2 driver being probed before the usb-nop-xceiv
probe, this means that during the dwc2 probe the function devm_usb_get_phy
never finds the a phy (because it hasn't been registered yet) but never
cause the dwc2 probe to defer.

I tried to follow what is done by dwc3_core_get_phy(): if the current
device has an of_node then try to get the usb_phy by phandle instead of
using devm_usb_get_phy(). This way when the probe order is not good the
devm_usb_get_phy_by_phandle() function will return -EPROBE_DEFER.

A snippet of the device-tree source I am using:
        &usb0 {
                phys = <&usb_phy0>;
                phy-names = "usb2-phy";
        &usb_phy0 {
                #phy-cells = <0>;
                compatible = "usb-nop-xceiv";
                reset-gpios = <&gpio 0 GPIO_ACTIVE_LOW>;
