Hi Andy,

Is there any driver that needs to setup the multiplex functions? If not, then
I would not add support for this at the moment. Adding unused code is a bad
idea in general.

In addition, such information should only be needed at initialization time,
and since we now have the new v4l2_i2c_new_subdev_cfg function I think that
that is the right way to do this. The same approach can be used for setting
the gpio pin directions. That too is something you setup at config time.
