"AUTO" sounds really rather generic. Based on just the word "AUTO", I
have no idea if it's a HW- or SW-supplied default, or what the algorithm
is for determining the automatically selected value. Perhaps
s/AUTO/PIN_DEFAULT/ or something like that?

While the concept is simple enough, it's unusual enough that such a
patch would hopefully have a comment containing a full explanation of
exactly what this option means.
