If that helps for the binding, ANX7688 is indeed a MFD (TCPC, HDMI to
DP converter, USB-C mux between USB 3.0 lanes and the DP output of the
embedded converter), with 2 I2C addresses:
- 0x2c is the TCPC/mux, used by the Embedded Controller [1] on Chrome
OS, and the code in this patch (my understanding is that lane count/BW
registers in the kernel driver below may only be available to FW on
- 0x28:
    - Used to update the embedded FW in the anx7688 (on Chrome OS we
do this in depthcharge [2]). This is a EEPROM-based FW (so even
without implementing this, it'll usually "just work").
    - Used to workaround some TCPC issues (see [1] again).
