One point here. If we have DSDT handling the gpios with the operation
region, those gpio resources don't need to be given to any device
(actually I think they really shouldn't be given to anything in that

I'm sorry but I'm still not sure about the scenario you are talking
When we load dwc3, we end up autoloading phy-tusb1210 in this case and
increasing the phy devices ref count i.e. preventing phy-tusb1210
module from being unloaded before dwc3 is unloaded.
If we unload dwc3 we can also unload phy-tusb1210 if we like but if
after that we load dwc3 again, the ULPI will be accessible the moment
we register the ulpi interface as it was before.
That I believe is actually a must in case of ULPI. When dwc3 is reset
with GCTL or DCTL SoftReset, it will first write to the ULPI
FunctionControl register's reset bit in order to but the PHY to reset
(PHYSoftRst has no effect in case of ULPI), so ULPI really has to be
accessible before the core is soft reset.
