Add new bindings used for USB support by the Tegra XUSB pad controller.

I'll mainly defer to Thierry for this patch, since he's the expert on this HW module.

diff --git a/Documentation/devicetree/bindings/pinctrl/nvidia,tegra124-xusb-padctl.txt b/Documentation/devicetree/bindings/pinctrl/nvidia,tegra124-xusb-padctl.txt

- #phy-cells: Should be 1. The specifier is the index of the PHY to reference.
See <dt-bindings/pinctrl/pinctrl-tegra-xusb.h> for the list of valid values.
+- mboxes: Must contain an entry for the XUSB PHY mailbox channel.
+ See ../mailbox/mailbox.txt for details.

Can we require the mbox-names property here, so that everything is looked up by names. I know that the proposed mbox binding states that using indexes is preferred over names, but that's just silly considering that names are widely used in most other similar bindings, and are much easier to extend in a backwards compatible fashion in the face of optional entries. As such, I'd prefer that all Tegra bindings use foo-names properties where they exist.

+Optional properties:
+- vbus-otg-{0,1,2}-supply: VBUS regulator for the corresponding UTMI pad.

Why "-otg"? It's quite possible to have a regulator for VBUS even on systems that don't support OTG, but rather simply have the ability to turn VBUS off.

- pcie-0, pcie-1, pcie-2, pcie-3, pcie-4, sata-0:

Valid functions for this group are: "pcie", "usb3", "sata", "rsvd".

+ The nvidia,usb2-port-num property only applies and is required when
+ the function is usb3.

There are 2 blank lines there.
