Yeah as it is from the compiler, sure we need to get rid of it.

I would favor the model to:

1. Replace all occurences of enum pin_config_param with unsigned

2. Replace the whole definition of enum pin_config_param with
etc etc.

I think it is not a good idea to try to do both at the same time.

A slightly lesser evil variant is to add a few PIN_CONFIG_CUSTOM_1
PIN_CONFIG_CUSTOM_2 etc at the end of the enum and just
in all drivers that use these.
