I'm not sure we need a separate device node, we could just register the
phy driver as a genpd provider, and then with an arg (so with
of_genpd_add_provider_onecell?) the index of the USB controller we want
to power up.

Using what I described above should be fairly simple, so if we can fit
in an available and relevant abstraction, yeah, I guess :)
