The existing Tegra USB bindings have a few issues:

1) Many properties are documented as being part of the EHCI controller
node, yet they apply more to the PHY device. They should be moved.

2) Some registers in PHY1 are shared with PHY3, and hence PHY3 needs a
reg entry to point at PHY1's register space. We can't assume the PHY1
driver is present, so the PHY3 driver will directly access those

3) The list of clocks required by the PHY was missing some required

This patch fixes the binding definition to resolve these issues.
