[Richard Zhu] Hi Lucas: Thanks for your comments.
VP/VPTX are combined together and connected to VDD_PHY_0V9.
Only VPH can be supplied by different voltage power supplies.
So, only VPH is specified in the DT binding, might be used to distinguish different
HW board designs.

How about this description:
- vph-supply: Should specify the regulator in charge of VPH one of the three
PCIe PHY powers. This regulator can be supplied by both 1.8v and 3.3v voltage
supplies. Might be used to distinguish different HW board designs.
