SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/3 v5] usb: phy-samsung-usb: Simplify PMU register handling

Well that's just the thing that's confusing right now, and which I am
trying to fix: every PHY is either DEVICE or HOST and thus has only
one PMU register. The current code describes the PMU register space
for all PHYs on the system in the DT entry of every PHY and then
calculates which register to use with hardcoded offsets. I think it
makes much more sense if every PHY only describes its own register and
doesn't need to do address arithmetic later on.

As Vivek said there is one exception in an old Exynos4, but that is
currently not implemented in the upstream kernel anyway, and if it
ever will be it's still much easier to special case one weird chip
than to have a super complicated and confusing mechanism for all of
them.
