It looks like useful for pins used as gpio line. Are you saying that we
also have to describe pins used as Alternate Function ? Currently for
stm32 MCU we add (for each pins in a group) a comment in
stm32xxx-pinctrl.dtsi file to describe the pinmux (to help developers).
On driver side for each stm32 pinctrl driver (ex:
drivers/pinctrl/stm32/pinctrl-stm32f429.c) we add for each possible
muxing a name:


To be honest, currently there is a an issue to printout the name :) but
I have a patch to send for that.
