I thought this was already discussed while we doing pinctrl driver for
Meson-AXG SoC.

Anyway, here it is:

Starting from Meson-AXG SoC, the pinctrl controller block using 4
continues bit to specific pin mux function, while comparing to old
generation SoC which kind of using various length bits for the pin mux
definition. The new design would greatly simplify the software model..

for detail example, one 32bit register can describe 8 pins, and each of
them has 0-7 value to set, start from value 0 to 7.

partition the register into 8 parts:
bit[3:0]
bit[7:4]
bit[11:8]
bit[15:12]
bit[19:16]
bit[23:20]
bit[27:24]
bit[31:28]


for each value:
value == 0, means the pin is GPIO
value = {1, 2, ... 7 } is one of specific PIN function

I could put this info into cover-letter or commit message?

It actually sit in the AO domain, although it's sounds strange from the
naming..

I'm not sure if it's good idea to append a AO suffix? since the
documentation just use the plain GPIOE
