Hmm, I think it would be much better in general if we could define
pinmux bindings in a way that is less specific to just one soc.
The contents of this file seem to be specific to even just one
version of the tegra chip, and might be completely different for
tegra30 and later, right?
Maybe Linus W can comment on this and say whether he thinks it can
be generalized enough to apply to other pinmux drivers.

These concepts seem general enough to me that they can apply to
other chips, and I would consequently drop the nvidia, prefix.

I noticed that each board you define has a complete list of these. Would
it be possible to move a generic list into a tegra20-pinmux.dtsi file and
just override the pins in the per-board .dts file that require some special

These again seem generic enough to go into a general pinmux binding, without
the nvidia, prefix.
