We have no idea what these PM pins are for the A31. And this code only
is of interest for the A31 for the moment. Let's not take into account
the A23 for now as far as the pin definitions are concerned.

It's been merged together in the A23, hence why we did it like that.

I'd agree with that.

It's quite different on the A31 and on the A23 actually :(

You don't have any of the audio thing for example, but you have the
