(Please ignore my response on V2)

Sorry being so late in the discussion...

If I am not missing anything, then I am afraid to say that the generic
library
implementation in this patch series is not going to solve many of the
custom
requirement of power on, off, etc...
I know you mentioned about adding another library when we come
across such platforms, but should we not keep provision (or easy
hooks/path)
to enable that ?

Let me bring in the use case I am dealing with,


Host
|
V
USB port
------------------------------------------------------------
|
V
USB HUB device (May need custom on/off seq)
|
V
=============================
| |
V V
Device-1 Device-2
(Needs special power (Needs special power
on/off sequence. on/off sequence.
Also may need custom Also, may need custom
sequence for sequence for
suspend/resume) suspend/resume)


Note: Both Devices are connected to HUB via HSIC and may differ
in terms of functionality, features they support.

In the above case, both Device-1 and Device-2, need separate
power on/off sequence. So generic library currently we have in this
patch series is not going to satisfy the need here.

I looked at all 6 revisions of this patch-series, went through the
review comments, and looked at MMC power sequence code;
what I can say here is, we need something similar to
MMC power sequence here, where every device can have its own
power sequence (if needed).

I know Rob is not in favor of creating platform device for
this, and I understand his comment.
If not platform device, but atleast we need mechanism to
connect each device back to its of_node and its respective
driver/library fns. For example, the Devices may support different
boot modes, and platform driver needs to make sure that
the right sequence is followed for booting.

Peter, My apologies for taking you back again on this series.
I am OK, if you wish to address this in incremental addition,
but my point is, we know that the current generic way is not
enough for us, so I think we should try to fix it in initial phase only.


Thanks,
Vaibhav
