Required Properties:
- - compatible : Should be "ti,palmas-usb" or "ti,twl6035-usb"
+ - compatible : Should be "ti,palmas-usb" or "ti,twl6035-usb" or
+ "ti,palmas-usb-vid".

So are ti,palmas-usb and ti,twl6035-usb full EHCI controllers then?

No. I thought I shouldn't remove those if someone is already using those
compatible value.

Well, I think we still have a short period of time where we can clean some badly defined bindings before it is really too late.

Both kernel and DTS are still in sync for the moment, so changing both at the same time should be safe.
