The patch was written in a way that all the existing and new drivers can
continue to use "usb" if they are using only one phy so that we remain
compatible. The names need to be different only if more than one phy is
specified. In such cases i don't think the first phy should be "usb" as
it would be confusing to have
phy-names = "usb","usbp1"
Should I run this by Alan Stern?

Yes, we have three identical phys connected to a single host controller
and one of the phys is also connected to the device controller
