Hello Kukjin and Krzysztof,

This is a trivial series that changes Exynos5 pinctrl dtsi files to extend
the pinctrl nodes using labels instead of full paths.

Using labels is less error prone since a misstyped label leads to a build
error while full paths can lead to the creation of a new node instead of
overriding the original which makes the mistake harder to detect.

I tested the changes by decompiling the Exynos5* dtbs and comparing before
and after. The resulting dts were identical modulo some node ordering due
the pinctrl include change.

The series is composed of the following trivial patches:
