The wm831x driver in the patch series is an example of such hardware -
it is purely a power manager, it has no USB PHY hardware at all. It's a
current limiter intended to sit in line with the USB power lines to
ensure the system doesn't go over the maximum current draw (and also
integrates with the power source selection logic the chip has to pick
the best available power source for the system).
