Thanks for sending this, I've also been meaning to do this for quite
some time :)

There is a simple solution to write the init values correctly: You can
just use the ULPI PHY driver for MSM8916 (phy-qcom-usb-hs.c), which
writes those init values correctly.

If you look closely at downstream you can see that all targets with the
"SNPS Femto PHY" (at least MSM8909, MDM9607, MSM8976) actually use a
mixture of the code currently implemented in the mainline ULPI PHY
driver (phy-qcom-usb-hs.c) and the actual Femto PHY driver

- The device trees contains "qcom,dp-manual-pullup", which enables the
ULPI_MISC_A_VBUSVLDEXT magic that is currently implemented partly in
phy-qcom-usb-hs.c and partly in ci_hdrc_msm.c:
- Downstream:
- Mainline:

- The ULPI init sequence is also implemented by phy-qcom-usb-hs.c in

- The PHY CSR registers implemented by phy-qcom-usb-hs-28nm.c are only
used to enter retention mode downstream (I guess some low-power mode
where an USB device/host could still wake up the other host/device).

We don't have support for proper support for retention on mainline
(phy-qcom-usb-hs-28nm.c never enables the retention mode without
fully powering off the PHY immediately after using the regulators).

So I suggest that we simply use the ULPI PHY driver for MSM8916 at least
for MSM8909 and MDM9607 (haven't checked MSM8976 in detail). I have
tried it and it works without any problems on both MSM8909 and MDM9607.
No driver changes needed!
