This reverts commit 3342ce35a1, as there is no need for this separate
property and it breaks compatibility with existing devicetree files
(arch/arm64/boot/dts/freescale/imx8mq.dtsi).

Hmm, didn't know there had been anything staged to merge and touching this
property before submitting the update. We must have done it nearly at the same
time, or your patch hasn't been merged at the time I prepared mine.

Anyway why would you prefer to change the interface again instead of
following the existing way? Firstly It is much easier to fix the dts-file
than to revert the interface back and break dts-files of possible other users.
Secondly the chip documentation doesn't have anything regarding port 0.
It states to swap the Ports from 1 to 4 (usb2514) corresponding to the bits
1 - 4 of the 'PORT SWAP' register, while bit 0 is connected with explicitly
named Upstream Port (without any numbering). Thirdly having a separate
property for US port makes the driver bindings interface a bit better
readable/logical, since in current implementation there is no implicit/unspoken/hidden
rule that port 0 corresponds to the Upstream Port, Port 0 just doesn't exists
(following the chip datasheet text), and the other port-related properties are
only applicable for downstream ports. So the driver code rejects them being
utilized for a port with 0 identifier. The only port-related setting being
exposed by the interface is the swap-port-one and it has a separately bound
property 'swap-us-lanes' for the Upstream port.

As for me, all of this makes more sense than having an implicit Port 0 - Upstream
port binding (as you suggest). Although the final decision of which solution is
better is after the subsystem maintainer after all.

Since the dtbs are firmware thats not possible everytime. You can't even
say that nobody uses that binding because it's not grepable within the
kernel repo. Most vendors do not publish their dts files but use the
bindings and rely on stable bindings.

Thats not true. I've checked the usb2517 documentation and PRTSP register
description. Bit-0 points to the upstream port and the dt-binding
is such generic to cover that too. By swap-dx-lanes I mean swap d+/d-
lanes else it would be something like swap-downstream-lanes. Since the
upstream port have d+/d- lanes too it would be covered too.

So the correct fix should be extending the documentation rather than
introducing a new binding?

That's true but he had to cover the dt-backward compatibility.
