While I like the idea of consolidating the pinmuxing stuff, I'm not sure
about having a struct pin_mux pointer in each bus types device structure.
It'd mean this would have to be added to platform devices as well...
Then there's SA1100 (and PXA?) to consider with its IrDA setup, where its
necessary to switch the pin muxing during driver operation, when switching
between SIR and FIR modes (SIR uses the UART, FIR uses a separate hardware
So any per-device pinmuxing subsystem also needs a way that a driver can
change the pinmuxing of its associated pins on the fly too.
