Since you've already imposed the following limit in the DT bindings:
The mediatek,pinfunc can be either a single value or an array.
If it is an array, that means all pins use same config in this node.
Maybe you could split the bindings into
mediatek,pins = <1 2 3 4>;
mediatek,func = <1>; (or some macro)
Or better yet, since you've already defined all the function names
in the pinctrl driver, you could just match by name for the functions.
That makes it very verbose and explicit about what you specify.
That's how we do it for sunxi anyway. Of course we have all the pin
function documentation open, so users and reviewers alike can double
check. Just a suggestion. :)
