Device tree representation and code used to implement the muxing
driver should be pretty independend, no? Yes, one piece of hardware
should have one entry in the device tree, so it should be something
like:


video-multiplexer {
compatible = "video-multiplexer-gpio"
mux-gpios = <&gpio 0>, <&gpio 1>;
#mux-control-cells = <0>;

mux-controls = <&mux>;

ports {
/* ... */
}
}

You should be able to use code in drivers/mux as a library...
