If I recall right, the problem there was that we have one register,
which has bits for two separate devices, and the bits are mixed up. i.e.
not 16 upper bits for one, 16 lower for the other, but 5 bits for one
device, the next 5 bits for the other, then again few bits for the
first, etc.

pinctrl-single,bits didn't like it that.

Yep, I'll have to come up with something.
