I'm not sure everyone will be happy with that line.

I'm not sure I understand. The old documentation referred to the
USBDEVICE_PHY_CONTROL and USBHOST_PHY_CONTROL registers for a phy, and
your new version only refers to (usb device) PHY_CONTROL. Regardless of
multiple phys, you're suggesting that we describe less of each phy.
That seems like taking away usable information. Unless I've
misunderstood?

Ideally, we'd describe the whole set of registers and linkages to phys,
even if Linux doesn't ahppen to use that information right now.

Thanks,
Mark.
