SubjectRe: [PATCH] usb: typec: Add sysfs node to show cc orientation

For what do you need this information in user space? I'm guessing you
have something else in mind besides exposing this as just generic
information, or debugging purposes, no?

Please keep in mind that we do not always know the cable orientation.
UCSI for example does not give any clues about which way the cable
plug was connected to the connector. That means this sysfs file will
most likely need to be hidden in those cases, which I guess is
acceptable, but definitely not ideal.

cc_orientation is a bit cryptic. I think if this is part of the port
ABI, then we should talk about something like "connector_orientation".

Now you are returning 0, 1 or 2 which to me is not ideal. This really
should return a string, something like "normal" / "reversed", and in
case the orientation is TYPEC_ORIENTATION_NONE, empty string.
