Some SoCs with a dwc2 USB controller may need to keep the PHY on to
support remote wakeup.  Allow specifying this as a device tree

For relevant prior discussion on this patch, see:


I didn't make any changes from the prior version since I never found
out what Rob thought of my previous arguments.  If folks want a
change, perhaps they could choose from these options:

1. Assume that all dwc2 hosts would like to keep their PHY on for
   suspend if there's a USB wakeup enabled, thus we totally drop this
   binding.  This doesn't seem super great to me since I'd bet that
   many devices that use dwc2 weren't designed for USB wakeup (they
   may not keep enough clocks or rails on) so we might be wasting
   power for nothing.
2. Rename this property to "snps,wakeup-from-suspend-with-phy" to make
   it more obvious that this property is intended both to document
   that wakeup from suspend is possible and that we need the PHY for
   said wakeup.
3. Rename this property to "snps,can-wakeup-from-suspend" and assume
   it's implicit that if we can wakeup from suspend that we need to
   keep the PHY on.  If/when someone shows that a device exists using
   dwc2 where we can wakeup from suspend without the PHY they can add
   a new property.

- In v2 Rob said [1] he'd prefer something based on the SoC
  compatibility string, but that doesn't work because not all boards
  will have the regulator setup / board design / suspend logic
  necessary to make this work.
