Initially I thought of implicitly overriding the phy-type when the external
phy-ops are set, but decided against it because that might break
(theoretical) cases where phy-ops may be always set but only used when
the ip returns a matching phy-type and thus came to just allow overriding
that type reading.
As for limiting to only allow forcing the vendor type, my personal feeling
would be to allow glue drivers to just override the type as needed
like done in the patch. As can be seen on the rk3328, the dw-hdmi
reports one of the regular phys (forgot which one) but instead has a
completely separate ip for it, so I'd guess we may very well see
implementations that just report a wrong type (no vendor-type).
So I don't see an issue with drivers being allowed to set the type to
DW_HDMI_PHY_DWC_HDMI_TX_PHY, because such cases may exist in the
future and I'd expect driver authors to somewhat know what they're doing.
But I'm not tied to that, so will go with the majority opinion :-D .
