Subject[PATCH v2 0/2] pinctrl: pinmux: Add pinmux-select debugfs file
This series first converts the debugfs files in the pinctrl subsystem to
octal permissions and then adds a new debug file "pinmux-select".
Function name and group name can be written to "pinmux-select" which
will cause the function and group to be activated on the pin controller.

Notes for PATCH v2:
- create patch series that includes patch to switch all the debugfs
files in pinctrl subsystem over to octal permission
- write function name and group name, instead of error-prone selector
numbers, to the 'pinmux-select' file
- switch from static to dynamic allocation for the kernel buffer filled
by strncpy_from_user()
- look up function selector from function name using
- validate group name with get_function_groups() and match_string()
- look up selector for group name with pinctrl_get_group_selector()

Notes for PATCH v1:
- posted seperate patch to switch all the debugfs files in pinctrl
subsystem over to octal permission [1]
- there is no existing documentation for any of the debugfs enteries for
pinctrl, so it seemed to have a bigger scope than just this patch. I
also noticed that rst documentation is confusingly named "pinctl" (no
'r') and started thread about that [2]. Linus suggested chaning that
to 'pin-control'. Thus I am planning a seperate documentation patch
series where the file is renamed, references changed and a section on
the pinctrl debugfs files is added.

Notes for RFC v2 [3]:
- rename debugfs file "pinmux-set" to "pinmux-select"
- renmae pinmux_set_write() to pinmux_select()
- switch from memdup_user_nul() to strncpy_from_user()
- switch from pr_warn() to dev_err()
