    I see your point. I attacked pinctrl some time ago, but it is overly
    complex for this simple stuff. We have static configuration that is
    enacted at boot, and that's it. Using pinctrl would mean much more
    code (and more bugs, as a side effect) for no real advantage. I
    appreciate the flexibility of pinctrl, and I see it's really good to
    have a way to describe complex SoC hardware, but it just isn't always

    Besides, it's still marked as experimental, which on one side is not
    reassuring about its stability, and on the other means my whole
    chipset should depend on experimental as a consequence.
