Only if you make it so. Providing a callback and duplicating code are
not the same thing

That's not really accurate:

So far they all have the "mux" and "gpio" region but

gxbb, gxl, axg, meson8 EE:
 has: pull, pull-en
 remap: non
 unsupported: ds

gxbb, gxl, axg, meson8 AO:
 has: pull
 remap: pull-en -> pull
 unsupported: ds

g12 and sm1 EE:
 has: pull, pull-en, ds
 remap: none

g12 and sm1 AO:
 has: ds
 remap: pull->gpio, pull_en->gpio

And now a1 chip remaps "ds" to "pull_en" ...

As said previouly all this is getting pretty difficult to follow and
maintain. Adding a proper callback for each meson pinctrl would make the
above explicit in the code ... which helps maintain thing, at least for
a while ...

Judging by the offsets between those regions, I still think one single
region would make things a whole lot simpler. If it is not possible to
map it with one single region, could you tell us why ? What non-pinctrl
related device do we have there ?
