It's the 5V VBUS power for the USB "plug" that's being controlled here. It
must turned on when the controller is in "host" mode. Some boards arrange
this in hardware through the PHY, and some just don't have any control at
all and have it permanently on or off. On a board where the 5V is controlled
using a GPIO line or an I2C chip, this patch is required to make it work.
That sounds like the driver should not be using _get_optional() then.
