I'm the one who added this

I'm not sure if I understand the problem yet - could you please
explain with your words what "legacy PHYs" are and how the "conflict"
with the PHY handling in USB core?

I am aware of two PHY subsystems:
- drivers/phy
-- also called "generic PHY framework"
-- uses a "phys" property
- drivers/usb/phy
-- also called "USB PHY framework"
-- AFAIK this should not be used for new drivers
-- uses an "usb-phy" property

the new PHY handling in USB core only parses the "phys" property and
thus should not conflict with "usb-phy" (the legacy property)

however, I probably missed something so I'd appreciate an explanation
how things can break
