pinctrl is not necessarily something I want the kernel to control, since
we have a high level scripting language without our bootloader that
makes sure pinctrl is properly configured from early boot on all the way
to the kernel, and preserved across suspend/resume states.
pinctrl-single does work, and was occasionally used. Everything else is
typically muxes that the kernel does not need to touch/see/be aware of.

I am afraid I can't provide that example because the sundry node is
really changing from chip to chip, and there is a gazillion of things in
there that the kernel typically does not even touch, like
pinmuxing/pinctrl, various mux selections etc. I could provide the
following example if that is what you are requesting?:


sun-top-ctrl: simple-bus@8404000 {
compatible = "brcm,brcmstb-sun-top-ctrl", "simple-bus";
reg = <0x8404000 0x708>;

reset: reset-controller@318 {
compatible = "brcm,brcmstb-reset";
reg = <0x318 0x30>;
#reset-cells = <1>;
};
};

Would that be what you expect to see?
