So then I toss the qcom driver into the game instead :)

If you look at drivers/pinctrl/qcom/* e.g. pinctrl-ipq4019.c or
essentially any of the subdrivers, you find exactly this scenario.

I am concerned that if we add infrastructure for this, it needs
to have more than one user. Qualcomm does fit your description
above I think.
