I would say, no, do not do that, because it simply does not worth.
Most of the definitions will probably never be used.

IMO, we can just focus on the support for device tree case (imx6) for
now. With proper DT binding for pinctrl settled, all these data can
go into DT. For those non-DT cases, we may want to leave them as they
are for now.
