Add support for ZRX-DC compliant PHYs. If PHY is not compliant to ZRX-DC
specification, then after every 100ms link should transition to recovery
state during the low power states which increases power consumption.

Platforms with ZRX-DC compliant PHY can use "snps,phy-zrxdc-compliant"
property in DesignWare controller DT node.

Strictly speaking, this is a property of the phy - not the controller that
uses it.

If I understand correctly, there are some DW based PCI controllers that use
a phandle reference in DT to a Phy (such as fsl,imx6q-pcie.txt). Therefore
it feels like this is in the wrong place. Is there a reason this isn't
described in the Phy?

Thanks,

Yes, from HW point of view this is a property of the PHY. As PHY is the one
which is ZRXDC compliant or non-compliant. 
But as the DW controller programming needs to be altered for handling such
phys, so we added it as a DT binding of DW controller driver. 
Also it might be possible that, some other PCIe controller (other than
DesignWare), do not have any such provision in controller H/W and they
expect PHY itself should expose some SFR to handle such scenario. In such
cases it is straight-forward to add this binding as part of PHY node.

We can add this as part of PHY binding, but in that case we will end up
checking PHY binding in DWC driver via PHY nodes which seems little a bit of
hack. 

Do you have any other better approach to handle this?

I think there may be others that have more informed opinions, such as
Kishon and Rob (on CC).
