We wanted to upstream driver for microchip usb5744 and based on this
thread with Rob

https://lore.kernel.org/all/CAL_JsqJZBbu+UXqUNdZwg-uv0PAsNg55026PTwhKr5wQtxCjVQ@mail.gmail.com/

the recommendation was to use i2c-bus link. And in our usb5744 case
where usb hub has only one i2c address we just hardcoded it in the
driver. I should be pushing this driver to xilinx soc tree soon if you
want to take a look.

Thanks,
Michal
