same line name? Why don't you use multiple child nodes with individual

lots of sub-nodes and add complexity on readability, usability and
Example: for my board, I wanted to set GPIO H2 to input and H0 and H1 to
be output high.
Instead of three nodes, I can have two here:
gpios = <TEGRA_GPIO(H, 2) 0>;
gpios = <TEGRA_GPIO(H, 0) 0 TEGRA_GPIO(H, 1) 0>;
So here I am grouping the multiple output GPIO together.
This looks much similar if we have many GPIOs for one type of
Even it looks better if we have something:
gpios-input = <TEGRA_GPIO(H, 2) 0>;
gpios-output-high = <TEGRA_GPIO(H, 0) 0
TEGRA_GPIO(H, 1) 0>;
