Genocide is bad

2023–10–14: Orange Pi 5 Plus and QuartzPro64 upstreamed

So I managed to upstream support for these two boards. I've updated my git tree to also include semi-cleaned up support for USB 3.0 on these boards, which basically completes the HW support that can be had for these boards, now. Everyhting but display output is supported.

USB Type-C port is as always a bit of a shit show, and it is so also with these two boards. Despite TCPM controllers working and being supported, and providing correct orientation signals to the kernel, the USB/PHY drivers don't know how to deal with this properly, so USB sort of kind of works only in one plug orientation.

So this will need further analysis of where the issues are, exactly.
