That first sentence here seems a bit useless and vague. It doesn't
really convey anything other than the name already does. Perhaps
something like:

Boolean property to indicate that the port support OTG. If
present, the port supports switching between USB host and
peripheral roles.

If this is mandatory, why not add it to the list of required properties?
I guess since it's only mandatory for ports that support OTG, perhaps we
could add a section "Required properties for OTG capable ports:" or
something like that? Then you can also omit the second sentence in the

There's no file called "connector.txt". Are you referring to


? Also, that file calls the property "vbus-gpios" and lists it as
optional. What would happen if we don't specify it? Doesn't that just
mean that we can't support role detection?
