Yes, theoretically, if a board does not have drivers running with pinctrl,
it may not need change.

There're so many boards under arch/arm/mach-imx/*:

Some of them i'm not familiar and i don't know whether they may use pinctrl
so i just patched the affected ones.

One lazy method may be just patch all board files without pinctrl support
and it will not cause any error.

What's your suggestion?

You meant add provide_dummies call in imx*_soc_init call?
We could do it but there might be a case that some boards are converted
to use pinctrl while others still not but they're based on the same soc.
For examples, 4 mx53 boards and we may not be able to convert them all at
the same time.
