     pinctrl: devicetree: Fix dt_to_map_one_config handling of hogs


I think you should check whether the bug is with the i.MX6 driver
relying on the previous buggy behaviour of pinctrl. I haven't got
i.MX6 hardware to test myself.

The bug I fixed in that patch was that when pinctrl is probing a
pinctrl driver it would try to apply all the pinctrl settings
listed in a dt node to the pinctrl driver it is probing instead
of the pinctrl drivers they actually refer to. This was a bug
introduced by an earlier patch (which unfortunately I forgot to
include a fixes line reference to)

  pinctrl: core: Use delayed work for hogs

So if a pinctrl driver "A" had a dependency on another pinctrl
driver "B" those dependencies wouldn't be properly created because
all the "B" pinctrl DT entries would be attempted against "A"
instead of "B". This caused failures if a pinctrl driver had a
dependency on another pinctrl driver, of if creating a pinctrl
driver that is a child of an MFD and that MFD has dependencies
on another pinctrl driver.
