This design has the problem.

If extcon uses only extcon_set_cable_state_(), the prototype of
extcon_{set|get}_cable_state_() functions should be changed.

extcon_set_cable_state_(struct extcon_dev *edev, enum extcon id, bool state)
-> extcon_set_cable_state_(struct extcon_dev *edev, enum extcon id, u64 state)

bool extcon_get_cable_state_(struct extcon_dev *edev, enum extcon id)
-> u64 extcon_get_cable_state_(struct extcon_dev *edev, enum extcon id)

The extcon client should do the bit masking operation to get the
wanted vaule of extcon_get_cable_state_(). I think it makes the
complicated on extcon client aspect.

If extcon add the new extcon_set_cable_line_state(), the extcon client
can get the state of whether external connector is attached or
detached by just calling the extcon_get_cable_state_() without any bit
operation.

Thanks,
Chanwoo Choi
