Add pin configuration support for Gyro-ADC, named ADI on r8a7791 SoC.

The Gyro-ADC supports three different configurations:
a single ADC (adi and adi_b groups), 2 ADCs selectable through a single
channel select signal (adi_chsel1 and adi_chsel1_b groups),

I've only briefly looked up at the datasheet, but is that a supported mode ?
It seems that mode 1 uses 4 channels and mode 2 and 3 use 8 channels.

I think you can always connect less ADCs than there are channels.
If you connect e.g. only one, you don't need any CHS signals.
If you connect e.g. two, you can use only one CHS signal.

AFAICS, you still have to use an external demux to create individual chip
selects from the single CS signal and (up to 3) CHS signals.

Actually Laurent's right and I have mis-interpreted the CHS signal purpose.

The CHS signal are not intended to select an external ADC where to sample from among the several connected ones, but instead to select which line to drive to a single ADC.

Quoting the processor manual, ADI supports three different ADC models through 3 different "modes"
- mode1: MB88101A
- mode2: ADCS7476/ADC121 and AD7476
- mode3: MAX1162
and cycles through channels moving the CHS[0:1] lines in mode1, and CHS[0:2] lines in mode2 and mode3.

Actually, being the MB88101A a 4-channel ADC, the CHS[0:1] lines could be connected to the ADC itself and used to cycle between its 4 input pins. In mode2 and mode3 an external DEMUX is probably required, as the supported ADCs for these modes are single-channel ones.

For pin configuration purposes anyway, it's enough to know that we cannot split CHS signals in three separate groups, but in 2 only (one for mode1 and one for mode2 and 3).

Will send v2 shortly.
