    Ah, that does look like a reasonable binding.

    I had meant to call out to reviewers the potentially unusual use of
    explicitly named sub-nodes, rather than using the usual reg-based matching.

    The main reason I chose named sub-nodes for the busses was so the
    sub-nodes would match the pinctrl named states. However, I think we can
    make the pinctrl numbering match rather than the pinctrl naming instead.
    The only issue is the "idle" state; if we allow it to exist anywhere in
    the pinctrl-names list, it'll make the pinctrl numbering mismatch the
    sub-node numbering. I think we can solve this by forcing the idle state
    to be listed last in pinctrl-names (if it's listed at all). I'll update
    my patches based on that David's patch.
