    Hmm, we are talking about function name and pingroup name instead of
    individual pin name. In your pinctrl-tegra20.c, they are .name and
    .groups as below.

    #define FUNCTION(fname) \
    { \
    .name = #fname, \
    .groups = fname##_groups, \
    .ngroups = ARRAY_SIZE(fname##_groups), \
