I thought about naming the mux pixel-input-mux (input-mux sounding too
generic) but then i hit rockchip-drm and went for that name. The
binding itself is not a drm thing in itself it really aims to model how
the mux is placed in the 'display pipeline' of the SoC (as Laurent
explained). Should I go with pixel-input-mux?

A mux control property is how it's modeled at the moment but that is
very SoC specific.

It's a different part of the SoC that lives in a register range very
separate (iomuxc_gpr) from MIPI/DSI (nwl). Does that qualify?
