If I remove the pinctrl entry in the bluetooth node, the gpio19 is then
marked as unclaimed. The drive strength also defaults to low but that
doesn't seem to be an issue and the the chip can still be enabled
through gpio19. Is it ok to have it unclaimed? If so I can remove it
from the binding and the doc then.

Regarding the blsp1_uart1_default of the serial node, I can still enable
the chip if I remove it but the hci commands all end in timeout. It
seems that the function for these pins has to be explicitly set to
blsp_uart2. So at least, the default pinctrl seems mandatory.
