For some reason I though 'echo -n is expected. I guess I'm still
living in the past in the days when the kernel version was still 2.4.
It did not use to be so unusual, and there are still plenty of sysfs
attributes that do expect 'echo -n..'.

But I'll fix this.

But the drivers should not call typec_set_data_role() in these
cases? That API the drivers should only use if the partners execute
the swaps.

So in this case, we need to set the role and notify sysfs here. This
function has to return successfully only if the role swap really
happened, and dr_set() of course can not return before the driver
actually knows the result of, for example, DR_swap.

I could have sworn I was setting the port->data_role here, but I guess
it was removed at some point...

Need to fix that.
