We have some pinctrl drivers implementing gpiolib too already,
and it's unavoidable I think, as some recent discussion about
matcing struct gpio_chip and pinctrl GPIO ranges shows.

Maybe "-simple" isn't such a good name for this thing. Noone thinks
any kind of pin control is simple in any sense of the word anyway :-D

Tony, would pinctrl-dt-only.c be a better name perhaps?
