    IIRC, people hoped that the common pinctrl bindings would make it into
    3.4. If that happens, the driver won't be unused in 3.4.

    I don't foresee any changes to the driver except those driven by any
    changes to the core pinctrl itself, so I don't foresee any need to keep
    it out of tree.
