Hi Sebastian

The current MPP code determines for itself what chip it is running on.
It can then check if a pin configuration is valid for the current
run time environment.

Here you are suggesting we have to put into the DT what chip we expect
to be on.

What is the advantage of this, over getting the information from the
device itself?

If i wanted to mass convert all existing kirkwood DT boards over to
use pinctrl, im stuck at the very first step. I've no idea what chip
they use, it was not relevant before.
