The way I understand it, this is for the current limits that can be
set on the Sink side.
During hard reset, sink has to fallback to VSafe5V or VSafe0V if
higher pd contract was negotiated.

Yeah thats for the source. But for sink, Say if the source isnt PD, then,
sink initiated hard resets happen during the connection. Sink would hard reset
couple of times before deeming that the partner is non PD. When connected
to Type-A ports/non-pd partner, vbus is not going to likely drop so there isnt
a reason to setcharge to false or drop the input current limit. Do you agree ?

IMHO Doing it in SNK_HARD_RESET_SINK_ON makes more sense when
vsafe_5v_hard_reset
is not set.
