For #1. It would be like
generic_parse_dt()
{
	1. parse all register regions (mux gpio pull pull_en ds)
	
	2. call  specific function through function pointer in
 	   meson_pinctrl_data.(each platform should have AO and EE two
           specific functions for they are not the same)
	{
		do work you mentioned above
	}
}
right ?
If that so, maybe there are a lot of duplicated codes for most Socs
share the same reg layout. So I guess five specific functions are
enough: AXG and before(ao,ee), G12A(ao,ee) and A1(will place them in
pinctrl_meson.c). Since m8 to AXG are the same register layout for both
ee and ao, G12A with new feature ds and new ao register layout.

Or I misunderstood the #1 ?
