This function is USB specific so better to call it usb_pwrseq_alloc() instead.
Although, this function has a lot of duplicated code from mmc_pwrseq_alloc()
so I think is better to keep the name generic and factorize the common code.
I expect other devices are also needing some kind of power seq in the future
so having a single alloc function instead of each for device type makes sense.

I know this is just an RFC but you should really add DT bindings for this.
