A pile of extra hardware becomes relevant and you only want
to be in this state if you have appropriate external device
wired up. In this case there is admittedly not a lot here
but some devices will look a bit more like a touchscreen controller.

They are often build on top of an ADC module, but have a load
of touch screen only signals and electrical elements that
warrant being represented as a separate node in the DT.
