This is actually wrong IMO unless Vbus is powering the controller
itself. If it is just a regulator routed to the USB connector, then the
DT should use the usb-connector binding and put vbus-supply there. If
the driver needs it, then it can walk the tree/graph and get it. For
some reason folks seem to think everything the driver needs has to be in
the node associated with the driver.


I guess given this is already in use:
