I still think we can get rid of this helper driver and have a single
driver for both PHY_EXYNOS4210_USB2 and PHY_EXYNOS4212_USB2.

This helper driver is a really nice way to avoid code duplication, while
still leaving the code clean and readable.

All the Samsung USB 2.0 PHYs require exactly the same semantics
(isolation, reference rate configuration, power up, power on), but each
one has completely different layout of registers and bits inside

I just did a diff of registers in exynos 4210 and 4212 PHY drivers [1] and couldn't find that big a difference in register layout. Of course there are a few changes in HSIC bit fields and PHYFSEL but that's only minimal and could well be handled in a single driver.

[1] ->

Making a big single driver would end up being identical to the old Exynos
USB2PHY driver with a lot of if and switch statements inside most of
functions, which is not only ugly but makes any further extension hard.

Probably we shouldn't try to over design and just convert the old exynos usb2 phy driver to the generic phy framework to begin with?
