Just realized that imx_pinctrl_probe needs a non-const struct
imx_pinctrl_soc_info *...

Afaik, while casting to non-const struct pointers in imxXX_pinctrl_probe
is not nice but should be technically ok since it is a non-const
declaration. However, in pinmux-imx7d.c the struct imx_pinctrl_soc_info
declarations have even been constified with b3060044e495 ("pinctrl:
freescale: imx7d: make of_device_ids const"). That seems not ok!

I wonder how that even works under the light of
CONFIG_STRICT_KERNEL_RWX. In a quick test it seems to boot fine though,
as far as I can tell rodata are set to ro once boot completed... It
seems at that point the pinmux driver has been initialized completely
and does not write to the struct anymore.

How can we fix this properly? IMHO we should at least unconstify the
struct imx7d_pinctrl_info/imx7d_lpsr_pinctrl_info declarations in
pinctrl-imx7d.c...
