As it stands, there is no way for userspace to change a pin from gpio
input to gpio output as it is based on the reciever active bit in the
pin control register (table 9-60 in the AM3358 datasheet [0]).

I thought it would be useful to at least define the GPIOs available for
use on the PocketBeagle by default (and eventually the other BeagleBone
device trees). Input seems to be the safest value. This patch at least
makes it more clear where the user should edit to switch from input to
output.

I agree that I would like for userspace to be able to do run-time
changes. However, I think something would need to be added to the
pinconf support in pinctrl-single for that to be possible. There are
bias properties but non for receiver enable.

Does it seem sensible to add that?


thanks,
