In general, I would say yes. However, I won't have ime to review
the differences between tcpci and the RT1711H. On a high level,
if RT1711H claims to suport TCPCI, it should use (or, rather, extend)
the TCPCI driver.

Note that the TCPCI driver does not claim to be complete; there is
a reason why it is still in staging. However, I would prefer if new
devices claiming to support TCPCI would use it instead of going
their own way. I don't have problems extending it with chip specific
details if needed. Such extensions may be implemented in tcpci.c,
or maybe better in a chip specific file.

Even if you don't use the existing driver, I don't really see why
it would make sense to redeclare all its defines.

Either case, you might want to run checkpatch --strict on your
driver. Most of that it reports is really unnecessary.
Also, some of the code, such as

+#ifndef BIT
+#define BIT(x) (1 << (x))
+#endif

is _really_ odd and, at least in this case, simply wrong.
