OK. What if we added also an optional pinctrl function that the pin
controller driver could call to initialize hogs? Then the pin controller
driver could call it during or after probe as needed. That is after
there's a valid struct pinctrl_dev handle.

We could also pass some flag if should always call pinctrl_late_init()
directly. But that does not remove the problem of struct pinctrl_dev handle
being uninitialized when the pin controller driver functionas are called.
