Yeah, I realized this while implementing the driver, :)

I'm now in the final testing/cleaning phase of both Cygnus pinmux and
gpio/pinconf driver. I really appreciate that the pinctrl framework
allows the two to work seamlessly with each other and at the same time
provides the necessary interface to bridge the two, :)

I should be able to send out the patches of the two drivers for review
sometime next week.

Thanks for the help!
