OK, got it. So yes, I can guarantee that ULPI will be acessible at
this point. If we are in a state where we could soft reset dwc3, we
know we can access ULPI. The fact that dwc3 itself expects to be able
to write to the ULPI registers at that point guarantees it for us.

So in practice when ever dwc3 is powered we will be able to access
ULPI for as long as the USB2 PHY interface is not suspended separately
with GUSB2PHYCFG SusPHY bit. And even then we would only need to
resume it with the same bit and ULPI is accessible again.
