I agree with you here, the vendor kernel is skipping most of the

yep, so we need something that controls mode switching
depending on the mode the VBUS regulator needs to be enabled (HOST) or
VBUS control however is not part of the PHY - in mainline Linux either
the dwc2 driver or a USB connector driver are taking care of it.

I believe that this specific PHY is unrelated to mode switching.
Either it automatically detects the mode and changes it's settings
internally or the PHY settings are the same for both modes.
Since VBUS control is not the responsibility of the PHY this is
My changes are not ready yet but I'll ping you once I have something to test

-115 is -EINPROGRESS but I am not sure if/when that's a bad thing or
to be expected
