Subject[PATCH 2/2] mux: add explicit hook to leave the mux as-is on init/registration
Date
A board may need a mux controller to stay as-is for a while longer, e.g.
if setting the normally preferred idle state destroys booting.

The mechanism provided here is not perfect in two ways.
1. As soon as the mux controller is registered, some mux consumer can
access it and set a state that destroys booting all the same.
2. The mux controller might linger in a state that is not the
preferred idle state indefinitely, if no mux consumer ever selects
and then deselects the mux.

Untested -> no sign-off, and I'm also really unsure about it because of
the imperfections mentioned in the commit message.

Cheers,
peda
