Agree that overriding the generic platform driver xhci_hc_platform_driver
from this exynos driver is odd.

But I don't understand how this works.
Where are the hcds created and added when this xhci-exonys driver binds to
the device? all this driver does in probe is the overriding?

Am I missing something here?

Sounds reasonable as well, and if some exynos specific code is needed
then just create a xhci_plat_priv struct for exynos and pass it in
of_device_id data like other vendors that use the generic
xhci-platform driver do.
