I agree with your comments. Honestly, I'm not comfortable with this
'qcom,init-seq' thing in the first impression. The similar existence in
mainline qcom,usb-hs-phy.txt makes me think it might be acceptable with
the timing data added. Okay, I know your position on this now.


Seeing that 'qcom,init-seq' is being configured with the exactly same
values for both HS phys in SoC level dts file (qcs404.dtsi), I think
such settings can be moved into driver code as SoC specific data.
Unless you have a different view on this, I will do it with v4.
