Yeah I think that can work. I had put the drm_bridge in this driver
because I needed a 'struct device' per DP phy, but I think that problem
goes away with an auxiliary device, so that is nicely solved.

I'll have to add logic about typec ports to that auxiliary driver
though, like mapping data-lanes and handling lane assignments. And then
I'll move this code from the cros_typec_switch driver to the
cros_ec_typec driver so it can be called outside of the typec mux set
path. That's probably better because it's sort of bolted on to the
cros_typec_switch driver. We'll need to know if the DP phy needs to
handle orientation or if the EC is doing that somehow, so probably I'll
need to add a DT property to the google,cros-ec-typec binding to
indicate that orientation control is needed.

It looks like I should add a new auxiliary device, like
'dp_typec_bridge', and have some other function like
drm_dp_typec_bridge_register() for that. I can wrap the 'struct
drm_aux_hpd_bridge_data' with a 'struct drm_aux_typec_bridge_data' and
then the typec port information can live there. HPD can still be
signaled with drm_aux_hpd_bridge_notify() but other functions can be
used to set the active typec port, e.g.
drm_aux_typec_bridge_set_active_port(), and then get orientation with
typec_get_orientation() in the atomic_check().
