True. If there is more then one supported alternate mode, we need to
identify it with the svid. But there is an other thing that needs to
be considered.

We need to be able to determine are we dealing with port or
partner/plug alternate mode. An easy fix would be to add something
like "is_port" argument on top of "svid", but I would like to think
about this. Perhaps we can fix this a bit more elegantly? For example,
if we could use struct typec_altmode_desc as the first argument
instead of typec_capapbility, we would not need to touch or add other
arguments.


Thanks,
