I wouldn't be that sure about that. It may as well be that the tcpc driver
and/or the tcpm driver are doing something wrong when initializing.

I didn't really understand the logs you sent out earlier. It looked like
the system would loose power if the TCPC_CMD_DISABLE_SRC_VBUS command is
sent. That doesn't really make sense to me since it indicates that the
chip sources power to the remote, and turning that off should not result
in a local loss of power.

Note that the chip is supposed to be able to report if it is sourcing vbus
and if VBUS is present, in the POWER_STATUS register. Another question is
the content of the ROLE_CONTROL register when the system boots, and the

Overall I suspect that we don't handle startup for your system correctly
in the tcpc driver. The ideal solution would be to find a solution which
does not require any devicetree properties, but to do that we'll need
to get a better understanding about your system's requirements.
