Isn't that just:

has_utmi_pad_registers = of_property_read_bool(phy_np,

... and then you can remove " = false" from the declaration too?

This is a pre-existing issue, but what happens if the probes for two USB
controllers run in parallel; there seems to be missing locking related
to testing/setting usb1_reset_attempted, which could cause multiple
parallel attempts to get the "utmi-pads" reset object, which would
presumably cause essentially the same issue this patch is solving in
other cases?
