That that is a bit painful right now to check properly as we don't
have any sorting, and we could use that elsewhere too for checks
probably..

..so for now, let's just check the total number of pins for the sets
like Felipe suggested. I think we're better off improving the pinctrl
data first to make various checks easier.

What you're suggesting with the mepcmp() can be done easily if we add
something like device_get_pins() and have the pins sorted for the
various states for a device at the device probe time.

Regards,

Tony
