I am not sure passing CFGCHIP2 register as reg property to the phy is
future proof. At some point, we do want to move to common clock
framework and at that point USB clocks controlled by CFGCHIP2 will be a
separate driver needing access to the same register.
So I think the CFGCHIP2 access in USB phy driver should happen through a
syscon phandle. This needs to happen now, not later since we cannot
break DT backward-compatibility.
