On the other hand, I find that having to go back to the docs for
determining the fsels is worse than just verifying and defining them
here all at once.  Maintaining has also gotten harder because our DTs
are split across 32 and 64-bit ARM, so rpi3 changes that require adding
one of these pinmux definitions back to the dtsi would require painful
cross-branch merges.
