I'm don't have any problem with getting the value from a property.
Sounds like the correct thing to do. Are you thinking about putting
that _DSD method to the ACPI device object for the dwc3? The correct
place would probable be separate device object for the PHY, but if we
do that we need to consider how that object is bound to the ulpi
device. There are few ways we can do that, so it requires some

In any case this driver we can already implement so that it expects to
get the value from property. We just need the name for it.

The register has actually separate fields for High speed output
impedance configuration and High speed output driver strength
configuration for eye diagram tuning, plus control bit for DP/DM swap.

Maybe we should actually get them from three separate properties:

device_property_read_u8(dev, "datapolarity", &val);
device_property_read_u8(dev, "zhsdrv", &val);
device_property_read_u8(dev, "ihstx", &val);

What do you think?
