Yes something like that, but it looks like that dtsi file has the usb
host controller connected through a remote-endpoint to the type-c
connector. I was under the impression that it would only be the phy that
is connected this way because it's possible for there to be multiple
different phys that drive data out through one connector. For example,
in type-c the DP phy can be different from the USB2 phy or USB3 phy and
there could even be other things like an HDMI phy too that all go to the
same connector.
