phy->attrs is pretty bus agnostic, so adding a USB-specific property
doesn't sound like the right thing to do here.

Could this perhaps be done using the ->set_mode() callback? We don't
currently implement that, but we could implement it and then perhaps use
the submode parameter to distinguish between USB 3.1 Gen 1 and USB 3.1
Gen 2. Perhaps a good mapping would look like this:

	USB 3.1 Gen 1: mode = PHY_MODE_USB_HOST_SS, submode = 0x0300
	USB 3.1 Gen 2: mode = PHY_MODE_USB_HOST_SS, submode = 0x0301

The above basically reflects that USB 3.1 Gen 1 is really USB 3.0. This
would also work with other speeds:

	USB 2.0: mode = PHY_MODE_USB_HOST_HS, submode = 0x0200

etc. I suppose to make this clearer we could add defines for the various
submodes. It seems like submode may be intended to represent one of the
interface modes defined by USBPHY_INTERFACE_MODE_*, but perhaps it can
be repurposed for PHY_MODE_USB_HOST_SS?
