SubjectRe: [PATCH v17 2/3] usb: USB Type-C connector class
Thanks for the responses :)

So seems like we have a plan.

In Type-C connector class the checks for TYPEC_PWR_MODE_PD
and pd_revision for both the port and the partner will be removed in
power_role_store and the data_role_store and will be delegated
to the low level drivers.

TCPM code will issue hard reset in tcpm_dr_set and tcpm_pr_set if
current_role is not same as the preferred_role.

I am going to make changes in my local kernel code base to start
making the corresponding changes in userspace.
Should I post-back the local kernel changes or Heikki and Geunter
you are planning to upload them ?

Thanks for the support !!
Badhri.
