I'm not sure I understand the issue. With my patch, if there is a
generic PHY described in device-tree, then devm_usb_get_phy_by_phandle
for legacy PHY will fail and the code will fallback to
devm_usb_get_phy, which is the same behavior as before.

Is it a problem that we can end up with both a generic and legacy PHY?
I thought this was expected behavior at probe, and the rest of the code
will just use the generic one in priority.

Do you want to make it so that only one (generic or legacy) PHY remains
after probe?
