It can be every different in hardware details from one pin based
controller to another.  mxs pinctrl is another pin based IP, and Dong
tried to approach a binding working good for both imx and mxs, but in
the end we agree imx binding does not work so good for mxs, and vice
versa.  And that's why pinctrl core binding design leaves out the
platform specific binding.
