Okay, sorry, I didn't get that, you are right, there is nothing wrong with 16.
I'll remove that change and leave it be.

I'll remove the change to the max-outbound-regions, it is not needed.
I'll place the registers as second parameter, both on the dtsi entry and here.
I'll keep the change to the register value because it is necessary along
with the added pinctrl.

This will simplify the patch, avoid unnecessary changes, and make
things clearer.

Sorry for the misunderstanding.
