If we use this per-controller approach rather than the per-state approach
I discuss in reply to patch 1/2, we should probably make it a generic
property for pin controllers and not just a pinctrl-single business.
So patch pinctrl-bindings.txt and put the code somewhere in
But that is more of a detail, first we need to figure out how to
handle this business in general.
