Oh good point. I'd remembered to update those in later patches, but not
this one...

I don't think that works as-is; currently, the names in the U300 map table
Are MMCSD, SPI, UART0, whereas the names in u300_mux_hogs[] are mmc0, spi0,
uart0. I can easily fix up the u300_mux_hogs[] in the same patch though.

"default" seems reasonable to me.

I couldn't find any mapping table defined for Sirf Prima II; is there
one checked in anywhere?

I guess we could just modify pinmux_get() such that if NULL is passed as
the state name, it uses "default" instead internally. The disadvantage I
see here is that someone reading the client driver and writing the mapping
table then has to know that pinmux_get() does that internally, rather than
it being obvious right in the client driver code.
