PIN_MAP_TYPE_DUMMY_STATE has no pctldev.

Right below that code, we traverse up the tree using
of_get_next_parent(). Internally, this calls of_node_put() on the node
pointer that's passed in. Hence, we need an extra get() to match this.

Oops yes. I though I had that somewhere, but evidently not...

Assuming of_find_property works correctly, I guess that's true. We can
remove that if check.

The user can place a property with name "pinctrl-suspend" into the DT.
However, since we only look for properties named pinctrl-%d, then the
code will never read/use it, just like any other unexpected property.

Yes, that's a good idea. I'll try that.

s/differing/deferring/ I assume.

IIRC, this was mainly to simplify error handling; by deferring it, you
don't have to unregister everything when undoing a failed parse.
However, I guess that pinctrl_dt_free_maps() already cleans up
everything anyway, so we couuld just register everything as soon as its
parsed. I'll think a little more about this and switch to doing that if
will work.
