Adding the support for the new PHY layer in the common CI code is not
complicated, but these functions also use some parts from usb hcd or usb
otg which are only usb_phy compatible.

Shouldn't these parts add the new PHY support first, to avoid ending up
with a fairly big series, quite long to do and complicated to review?
