+* Freescale IOMUX Controller (IOMUXC) for i.MX
+The IOMUX Controller (IOMUXC), together with the IOMUX, enables the IC
+to share one PAD to several functional blocks. The sharing is done by
+multiplexing the PAD input/output signals. For each PAD there are up to
+8 muxing options (called ALT modes). Since different modules require
+different PAD settings (like pull up, keeper, etc) the IOMUXC controls
+also the PAD settings parameters.
+Please refer to pinctrl-bindings.txt in this directory for details of the
+common pinctrl bindings used by client devices, including the meaning of the
+phrase "pin configuration node".
+Freescale IMX pin configuration node is a node of a group of pins which can be
+used for a specific device or function. This node represents both mux and config
+of the pins in that group. The 'mux' selects the function mode(also named mux
+mode) this pin can work on and the 'config' configures various pad settings
+such as pull-up, open drain, drive strength, etc.
+Required properties for iomux controller:
+- compatible: "fsl,<soc>-iomuxc"
+ Please refer to each fsl,<soc>-pinctrl.txt binding doc for supported SoCs.
+Required properties for pin configuration node:
+- fsl,pins: two integers array, represents a group of pins mux and config
+ setting. The format is fsl,pins = <PIN_FUNC_ID CONFIG>, PIN_FUNC_ID is a
+ pin working on a specific function, CONFIG is the pad setting value like
+ pull-up on this pin. Please refer to fsl,<soc>-pinctrl.txt for the valid
+ pins and functions of each SoC.
+Bits used for CONFIG:
+NO_PAD_CTL(1 << 31): indicate this pin does not need config.
+SION(1 << 30): Software Input On Field.
+Force the selected mux mode input path no matter of MUX_MODE functionality.
+By default the input path is determined by functionality of the selected
+mux mode (regular).
+Other bits are used for PAD setting.
+Please refer to each fsl,<soc>-pinctrl,txt binding doc for SoC specific part
+of bits definitions.
+Some requirements for using fsl,imx-pinctrl binding:
+1. We have pin function node defined under iomux controller node to represent
+ what pinmux functions this SoC supports.
+2. The pin configuration node intends to work on a specific function should
+ to be defined under that specific function node.
+ The function node's name should represent well about what function
+ this group of pins in this pin configuration node are working on.
+3. The driver can use the function node's name and pin configuration node's
+ name describe the pin function and group hierarchy.
+ For example, Linux IMX pinctrl driver takes the function node's name
+ as the function name and pin configuration node's name as group name to
+ create the map table.
+4. Each pin configuration node should have a phandle, devices can set pins
+ configurations by referring to the phandle of that pin configuration node.

+80Ohm driver strength and Fast Slew Rate.
+User should refer to each SoC spec to set the correct value.
+TODO: when dtc macro support is available, we can change above raw data
+to dt macro which can get better readability in dts file.
