The idea is to model the driver as close to the hardware though I understand
there won't be any advantages w.r.t power or performance. maybe in later
versions of the IP we'll have separate bits to control usb3 and usb2.

I think for power control we should have both usb3 and usb2 power-on callback
calling a single function that controls the power bit.

Thanks
Kishon
