That's correct: as long as the rx, tx-bus-width properties do not indicate a
Dual or Quad wiring, it won't be used.

However, based on schematics, someone may set the rx, tx-bus-width properties
to 4, which is correct, as DT describes the hardware. But this will fail to
work.
So I think it's safer not to announce Dual/Quad support in the driver until
the actual driver support is there.
