See for example

It looks like useful for pins used as gpio line. Are you saying that we also
have to describe pins used as Alternate Function ?

No. The use of the names is up to the platform maintainer (you),
leaving a blank string for non-GPIO lines is just fine.

Some platforms add the name of the actual function used by the
line on the design, if it is not GPIO, sometimes something in
brachets like "[i2c0-SDA]" that says what it is used for and explains
why you can't use it for GPIO on this setup.

But just leaving it blank is just as good.

Ok thanks Linus. I will take it into account. It could be useful to add it for MCU and future MPU boards.
