You can still make modifications to the DSDT?!

I am familiar with _DSD, and it does not just allow us to add integer
values, but complete named key to value properties compatible with dt,
including strings. And in case you guys were not familiar with the
unified device property interface, it's a wrapper for apci and dt, and
should btw. be used instead of acpi_* or of_* to get properties in
drivers from now on.

So if we add these properties for the dwc3 device object:
"ulpi,vendor", "ulpi,product", we can check them in ULPI bus driver as
an alternative for reading the vendor and product registers, and
indeed be able to bind the PHY to a driver before it's powered on!

P.S. We should not mix BIOS to ACPI.


Thanks!
