Let me see if I get this right: so this would be all GPIO/pinctrl
drivers which are probed exclusively from the device tree
so anything that depends explicitly on CONFIG_OF would
be a candidate?

I think we have a bit of a problem that some drivers depend
only on a certain arch or compiles directly for a certain arch
without any specific Kconfig option so that this may be a
bit hard to spot, so we should keep an eye out for this
once this probing scheme is in place.
