Overall this is looking fine.

As I have just discussed with Heiko, we need generic pin config bindings for
the drivers using generic pin config, such as the abx500. We have to start
unifying unifiable stuff...

i.e. this is not similar to the Nomadik pinctrl driver, because that one is not
using generic pin config.

So we're trying to agree on generic bindings with generic parsing code to
avoid code duplication.

Please check my review of Heiko's patch for my ideas and comment in
that thread.
