Sorry for the delayed response due to few designed changes. Now we have 
more clarity for the customer platform with respect to usage of DWC3 
controller driver. So it is type C controller which will be using ACPI 
based UCSI driver. As UCSI driver has already role switch support we may 
not need this patch. However we need your input to understand this,

con->usb_role_sw = fwnode_usb_role_switch_get(cap->fwnode);

For this to work, how should be ACPI entry to be defined. Do you have 
sample code, we had discussion on similar point in past but still need 
some clarity if we have sample ACPI ASL Code. I remember something on 
this line from previous discussion with following sample code.

  * I2C1 is the I2C host, and PDC1 is the USB PD Controller (I2C slave 
Scope (\_SB.PCI0.I2C1.PDC1)
         /* Each connector should have its own ACPI device entry (node). */
         Device (CON0)
                 Name (_ADR, 0)

                 Name (_DSD, Package () {
                     Package() {
                         Package () {"usb-role-switch", \_SB.PCI0.DWC3},

So here is the another question , if we can not achieve this in BIOS , 
Can we register the software node with quirk in DWC3 controller 
something like this

static const struct software_node amd_dwc3_node[] = {
	{ "amd-dwc3-usb-sw", NULL, amd_dwc3_props },

if (dwc->use_sw_node_quirk) {
		ret = software_node_register_nodes(amd_dwc3_node);
		if (ret)
			return ret;
		dwc3_role_switch.fwnode = software_node_fwnode(&amd_dwc3_node[0]);
	} else {
		dwc3_role_switch.fwnode = dev_fwnode(dwc->dev);

And in UCSI driver again with quirk,

swnode = software_node_find_by_name(NULL, "amd-dwc3-usb-sw");

fwnode = software_node_fwnode(swnode);

con->usb_role_sw = usb_role_switch_find_by_fwnode(fwnode);

Please provide your input that will help us .
