Sorry for the late reply as I was out during the holiday break.

I'm not really sure. My understanding of the driver Andy submitted
were for some of the older MSM and IPQ SoCs that implemented the PHY
controls as part of the DWC3 controller's "QScratch" registers, which is
why the bindings doc and the compatible string reference "dwc3" in both
the compatible and the docs filename. Is the SNPS PHY on QCS404
architected similarly in this regard? Either way, the existing bindings
doc for the non-existent driver looks incomplete for QCS404, so you'd
have to update it anyway. My feeling is that there should just be one
document describing all variants of SNPS PHYs on Qualcomm chips.
Maybe we should also just delete the "qcom,dwc3-ss-usb-phy" binding
unless there is a plan to resurrect Andy's driver.
