How to remove USB Type C support for linux?

we do not have USB Type C hardware support, so we do not need software support. Removing the driver and the related device tree entry ends in a non-bootable kernel. What changes have to be done to remove the USB Type C support?

Further infos:

- Custom Board based on imx8mn-ddr4-evk




Device Tree based on fsl-imx8mn-ddr4-evk.dts: If the part typec_ptn5110_1 is removed the kernel hangs during bootup.

Removed the following from the defconfig file.




Removed these entries from device tree file


pinctrl_typec1: typec1grp {




typec_ptn5110_1: ptn5110@50 {

    typec_ptn5110_2: ptn5110@52 {
