If Stephen Warren is the other maintainer you are talking about he does 
not work at Broadcom.  I don't think he is familiar with the variety of 
pinctrl implementations present.  But yes, the pinctrl implementations 
have been rather unique in these Socs.  As Ray indicated we're trying to 
get the silicon designers to standardize more going forward so we don't 
have to create unique drivers for these SoCs.
