Seems to me that might violate the specification, and cause trouble for systems
where vbus has to be off initially. It may be better to provide this kind of
information as configuration parameter instead of imposing it on everyone.

It felt like it would not be the correct thing to do either. I've tried re-arranging the code in tcpci.c to enable the sink before disabling the source but the only way I found to not disable the power was by setting both of those to true.

What about adding some device tree entries for the initial vbus state and default to false if they are not present ?

init-vbus-source and init-vbus-charge ?

Yes, I think we should do something along that line. Another question is
if we could or should optionally pull the current state from the low level
driver, but that may be secondary.

I thought of trying to do that but from reading the "PTN5110N PD PHY application programming guide" there didn't seem to be a direct way to read those parameters.

Let's put that on the backburner (maybe it works for some other chips)
and go with the devicetree property for now.

I am personally in favor of standard multi-line comments.
