Rob pointed me here at your series.

And I have looked at RTS5411 datasheet and it looks very similar to
Microchip usb5744 chip we use.
Both have i2c/smbus and spi interfaces and also input clock.
usb5744 has also external gpio reset.

There are also usb3503 and others which should fit to this generic DT


That's why please keep me in the loop on v6 because I think
