Yes it is one of the solutions. Once detect the UFS device is version
3.0+, you can lower
the voltage to 2.5V from the hardcoded value used by the driver.
However, to change the
Vcc voltage, the host needs to follow a sequence to ensure safe
operations after Vcc change
(device has to be in sleep mode, Vcc needs to go down to 0 then up to
2.5V.)
Also same sequence is repeated for every host initialization which is
inconvenient.

Thank you for the suggestion.
