Yes some PHYs do care about the role. Sometimes they have to toggle some
bit to switch between host and gadget mode for example. I haven't fully
read this patch series but maybe the PHY can be the one that controls
the gpio for the connector?

We (ChromeOS) need to integrate the type-c connector class, etc. on
sc7180 with the dwc3 driver and the current thinking has the type-c
connectors underneath the cros_ec node because the EC is the type-c
manager. The EC will have a type-c driver associated with it.
