I'm still having concerns about describing both phys and devices. If I
have a controller with 2 ports and 2 devices attached, I'd have
something like this under the USB controller:

ulpi {
phy@1 {
};
phy@2 {
};
};

dev@1 {
...
};

dev@2 {
...
};


That doesn't seem the best, but I don't have a better suggestion. Maybe
the device nodes need to go under the phy nodes?
