OK, so in both cases only one port (with one u2phy and one u3phy) is
dual-role capable

I see, in your example it's the mtu3
(Documentation/devicetree/bindings/usb/mt8173-mtu3.txt) which does the
mode switching. I assume that you're doing the host/device mode
switching through the extcon phandle (for example together with the
extcon-usb-gpio driver).

in you example: can't we *always* describe the roothub via devicetree
(just like in my example: [0])?
this means that (as you already mentioned) USB host-only support is now covered.
to handle dual-role (host/device switching) we now need to pass the
dual-role capable PHYs to whatever IP can detect the mode it should
operate in (in your case: mtu3, in Amlogic's case: the u3phy with
built-in mode detection logic -> the driver for this IP block should
call phy_set_mode(phy, PHY_MODE_USB_{HOST,DEVICE,OTG} accordingly).
here's a skeleton (stripped-down) of how the .dts could look like:
mtu3: usb@11271000 {
    compatible = "mediatek,mt8173-mtu3";
    /* MT2701 = 2nd example, for MT8173 = 1st example we would skip
the u3phy0 */
    /* only list the dual role capable PHYs here */
    phys = <&u3phy0>, <&u2phy0>;
    phy-names = "usb3-phy", "usb2-phy";

    usb_host: xhci@11270000 {
        compatible = "mediatek,mt8173-xhci";
        roothub@0 {
            /* includes all PHYs, including the dual role capable ones */

do you think that this would work for the Mediatek SoCs?
I've seen that the phy-mt65xx-usb3.c PHY driver does not have any
.set_mode callback - I assume it's simply because it doesn't need it
(as this is either managed by the hardware/IP block internally, or
through some firmware/mailbox mechanism).
