Well, the power consumption won't be much. Currently the PHY driver supports
only 2 PHY init sequence, default one (G3/G4) and G4/G5. When ufshcd decides to
run at G4/G5, second sequence would be used and for rest of the gears, first one
would be used. So even today, the G3/G4 sequence is used when ufshcd decides to
downscale to lowest gear G1.

Moreover, on future SoCs the init sequence won't be compatible i.e., we cannot
switch between them. For these reasons, it makes sense to stick to the init
sequence of max gear.
