Hmm... apologies, I suspect this is me that needs to review the
code some more. So this is actually creating a group per user
rather than per controller.

Although I guess my original point still stands that I am not
clear how this would benefit from my patches to allow muxing of
individual pins within a group. Since I guess each user will just
get a group created for the pins they use regardless. Or am I
missing something here too?

Thanks,
Charles
